Apple's car beyond rumors may have a plan front lights that have given the street driver more recognition, and in particular the issues that can be seen in it, highlighting areas of interest of the road using light.
While much of the speculation about what we know as the Titan Project is related to the vehicle's design and autonomy and driving ability, according to two new patents acquired yesterday Apple looks at many other factors, such as a very comfortable driving experience.
Report without interruption
It is true that many current vehicles already provide us with additional information on the status of indicators, alarms or information screens, but most of this data is limited and in all cases they force us to look away from the road
The Apple patent suggests that you can change the light emitted by car lamps to highlight road sections that the system considers the driver to follow closely.
This system is based on information gathered by the car from the road through a series of sensors very similar to those required for autonomous driving. This information is analyzed to determine the location of the road and to show the information to the driver. In terms of ownership you can add a color code so the driver can see different types of obstacles
The selected lighting system will also be able to synchronize event lighting (as well as overall driving) taking into account the weather, available light and event display.
Navigation and pedestrian information
And this optical illumination does not limit its performance by obstacle detection, since it can also be used to highlight other road signs or call the following path commands On the road when using a system with a formal navigation system. Information that will allow other users to know about the car's purpose.
Apple regularly registers multiple ownership for various technologies that may or may not be included in the finished products, at least for now, we have to wait it is great news to know when we will finally see this future Apple Car lighting system.
However, to show a little, from the knowledge we have of the Apple Car, it would be wise to assume that Will Apple eventually offer the car accessories available instead of the perfect car? You attend a workshop, installing a headlight system and a sensor in the front and you can enjoy special lighting in your car. It is important to think and talk (below comments).
