Apple hat ein neues Patent zum Einsatz eines Virtual Reality Headsets beim Autonomen Fahren beantragt.
Apple was granted a patent today covering an augmented virtual display. Apple notes that “embodiments of the VR system as described herein may be implemented in autonomous or “self-driving” vehicles where all occupants are passengers.” It’s one of Apple’s futuristic visions for the use of a future headset designed to entertain those in an autonomous vehicle that is driving them to their destination. It also could allow executives to get work done or participate in a video conference.
Apple’s patent FIG. 8 below is a block diagram illustrating active systems in a vehicle that may be used in a VR system to provide synchronized physical effects for passengers.
