It is no secret that Apple is working on a self-driving car project. A new Apple patent describes a system that alerts users with the help of notifications on the iPad and iPhone screens. This is expected to allow drivers to take their eyes off the road while still being alerted whenever necessary.
Apple has been working on multiple car projects, including a complete smart car and a self-driving car system. The company’s priorities seem to target ease of use and safety. Now, a new patent suggests that Apple is working on safer and more reliable self-driving algorithms that take data from multiple sensors and use that data in a variety of ways.
There’s no doubt that Apple is working on its self-driving car, and if it brings such a product to the market, it will have some unique features. One of those features could be a self-adjusting seat that holds a driver firmly during sharp turns for better driving experience and safety.
A new Apple patent related to the keyless car entry feature for a possible future Apple car has been published. It mentions the possibility of using a smartphone, smartwatch, or a smart device for user authentication to unlock a vehicle.
It is no secret that Apple is working on an autonomous car of its own. Thanks to a report from Digitimes we now know the status of the project. According to the report, Taiwan based Quanta Computer is supplying Apple with an unknown number of “autonomous driving solutions.”
As the design head at Apple, Jony Ive worked on a number of products at the company. Many of them were released to the public while others were nixed in prototyping stage or are not yet ready for a public release. A report from The Information reveals that Jony Ive worked on the design of the Apple Car and came up with a pretty wild concept.
Word on the street has been going strong for quite some time that Apple is building, or has aspirations to build at least, its own electric and/or self-driving car.
Back in January, it was reported that Apple had let go over 200 employees working on its Project Titan efforts.
Apple’s “Project Titan” has been a pretty consistent rumor for quite some time, with a lot of the focus being on what type of autonomous vehicle the company could be working on.
