Apple's long-rumored car could have a headlight system that provides drivers with more awareness of the road, by highlighting areas of interest ahead of the vehicle by making the light shining from the headlights brighter specifically in those regions.
Apple and a coalition of tech and automotive companies in a letter to the European Commission this week said patent licensing abuses are stifling innovation of self-driving cars and other connected devices.
Passengers of the Apple Car may be able to use AR or VR without worrying about a car's movements causing nausea, while infrared sensors inside the vehicle may be hidden from view by light-reflective panels.
Apple representatives on Monday appeared in federal court to ensure the locations of two former employees accused of stealing trade secrets are continuously monitored, arguing the pair pose flight risks.
A future car designed by Apple could offer increased privacy via the use of 'synchronized windows,' as well as side mirrors capable of automatically adjusting their positions based on the driver's head movements.
Apple is considering the possibility of using an iPhone or Apple Watch to provide keyless entry for its long-rumored Apple Car, with the use of Ultra Wideband to help make the system more precise at determining the range of the user from the car than current keyfob-based systems.
An Apple-produced car under 'Project Titan' could include an lighting system that keeps the light inside the vehicle as even as possible throughout a journey, such as changes by cloud movements and traveling through a tunnel, by borrowing the core concept of the iPad Pro's TrueTone technology.
Apple is researching plans for a car lighting system revolving around embedding LEDs, lenses, and fiber-optics throughout the interior, potentially to tell passengers to put on their seatbelt at the start of a journey.
A future Apple-designed self-driving vehicle may not show any external signs of its automated functionality, with Apple looking into how radar systems could be made smaller, lighter, and cheaper in a bid to hide them from the view of other road users looking at the vehicle.
Apple's future car from 'Project Titan' could be accompanied by an accessory for the home to help recharge the electric vehicle, consisting of a small robot capable of hooking the car up to an electrical point below the vehicle to acquire more power.
In the short term, you could use this as a cut-out-and-keep guide to Apple products. In the much longer term, time travellers could use it as a way to figure out which year they are in. Pick an Apple product, and you can then see when you are by just figuring out where you are in the loop.
A car with self-driving capabilities could hand control over to a remote operator in the event of an emergency, Apple proposes, with an autonomous driving system taking instructions from a central system to get to a hospital or other location as quickly and as safely as possible.
Apple is continuing to come up with new designs for essential elements of a car, potentially as part of its "Project Titan" vehicular efforts, with ideas surrounding how to improve the floor assemblies and doors that make up a considerable portion of a vehicle's body to be stronger and to accommodate more batteries.
Apple's automotive ambitions could have been augmented with the acquisition of Tesla, an analyst claims, with the iPhone maker said to have made a "serious bid" to buy the electric car producer in 2013, a move that could have brought technology developed under "Project Titan" to commercialization far earlier.
