Apple Car will have an anti-glare windshield to prevent bright lights from entering the driver's eyes prevent bright lights from interfering with the driver's vision. The Cupertino tech giant's first autonomous passenger car, Apple Car, is expected to hit the market in the next four to five years. Based on industry reports and pending patents, the electric vehicle (EV) will be powered by a revolutionary new monocell battery for long range, equipped with LiDAR scanners for navigation, external LEDs to indicate its actions and more. It is also reported that after several failed negotiations with leading automakers such as Hyundai, BMW, Nissan and others, Apple has decided to independently manufacture the electric vehicle. Now we have additional information about the possible anti-glare technology that will be used in the new Apple Car. The windshield of Apple Car will be equipped with new camera sensors to locate the driver's gaze and the light source to reduce glare As in the ambient light such as headlights and sunlight are reflected from the mirrors (windshield, rear, left and right, window) and can enter the driver's eyes and cause temporary blindness that can lead to accidents. Therefore, Apple has proposed a way to reduce glare in a vehicle through new camera sensors to locate the driver's gaze and light sources to automatically dim the vehicle certain window from which the bright light is reflected. A control circuit can use a sensor, z information about where an external object that produces glare, such as the sun, a reflective part of a vehicle (z. B. A shiny bumper or rear window of a vehicle on a roadway), a streetlight or other source of glare outside of the vehicle, and the direction in which the external (exterior) object projects light toward the vehicle (z. B. In the direction of a driver's eyes) or other vehicle occupants). Based on this information, the control circuitry can aim a light modulator at a window or vehicle mirror to selectively darken an area that prevents glare from reaching the driver's eyes.
The As a sunscreen, a new light modulator in the form of a strip is placed on the edges of the windshield. The light modulator could have a photochromic layer, a liquid crystal modulator, an electrochromic modulator or any other type of light modulator structure. The light modulator may be patterned to form a series of rectangular stripes areas or otherwise shaped areas that extend along the top edge of the windshield of a vehicle and therefore allow the light modulator to serve as an electrically adjustable sunshade. A light modulator can also be built into other windows in a vehicle to reduce glare from headlights, the sun and other light sources. Vehicle mirrors equipped with light modulators can be adjusted to selectively darken a portion of the mirror that would otherwise reflect glare into the driver's eyes.
Although the launch of the physical Apple Car is still years away, it has already made a lot of waves among competitors and speculators. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is clearly disgusted with Apple's electric vehicle, an analyst believes Apple has all the right ingredients to deliver a great electric vehicle, and battery pioneer says Apple Car will define the future of mobility. Tesla has its own independent strategy. The one to watch out for is Apple. What will they do? I think they may announce something soon. And what kind of car would they announce? What kind of battery? They're probably looking to get in around 2025. If they do that, I think they have to announce something by the end of this year. This is just my personal hypothesis.
