Once again, Apple’s creative concepts are generating news, this time for a revolutionary windscreen technology. The business has submitted a patent application for an augmented reality (AR) display system that might provide drivers with a whole new level of information.
The recently submitted patent application to the USPTO describes a futuristic idea. Think of a windscreen that displays information in real-time in front of the driver. This information contains specifics about the road ahead, distant objects, the vehicle’s speed, the condition of the suspension, and more. With this technology, vital information would be easily accessible, improving driving.
Apple’s system would rely on several types of sensors, including cameras and scanning devices, to gather information regarding the car’s surroundings in order to make this happen. A three-dimensional model of the environment would then be made using this data. Instead of simply displaying this data on the windscreen, the intention is to seamlessly incorporate it, giving the driver a fully immersive experience.
While certain portions of this patent may resemble previous Apple concepts, this recent suggestion takes things to a whole new level. It’s a glimpse into a possible future in which our car windscreens become windows into a layered digital world on top of reality.
