Apple Car To Get Automatic Shading System

The Apple Car is a long-rumored product. Now from sources, we have come to know that the Apple Car will be using an automatic shading system to block direct sunlight from the eyes of the drivers and the passengers. As per reports from AppleInsider, the automatic shading system will stop drivers and passengers from being blinded by the sun’s light or dazzled by the headlights of approaching cars at night. As per the patent granted by the US Patent and Trademark office the “active glare suppression system” will stop bright lights from reaching the driver’s eyes and at the same time keeping the rest of the view clear.

Along with this LED screens all over the vehicle are expected to be present in the Apple Car. The reason for this is to inform other drivers what the self-driving system is doing. The information displayed on the screens would include braking information, the speed of the car, and other messages in the form of graphics and video.

The report further mentions that during parking of the vehicle the display might show a goodbye message or welcome the user on arrival to the vehicle.

The apple car might use a C1 chip based on the A12 Bionic processor with in-cabin AI capabilities like eye-tracking.
Also, Apple will need a chip foundry that has the capacity for automotive processes that Samsung or TSMC could supply to Apple.
