Project Titan: Scene Camera System
Today Apple was granted patent 10,757,373 which covers a future vehicle system that includes a plurality of scene cameras mounted. In one instance, an omnidirectional camera which can be used to record an event happening around a police vehicle. Another use is to use the cameras to encourage safe driving of a vehicle by recording images of the surface of the road and part of the vehicle. In the event of an accident the recorded images could be used as proof of safe driving.
Apple further notes that there is known a mobile phone application called "ASAP54" that allows the user, upon seeing a particular outfit or style the user is interested in on a real person or magazine, to take a photograph of the outfit using a camera on an iPhone. By using image recognition, the application can find that piece of clothing the user is looking at and a number of similar fashions. For employing this, the user is required to focus the camera of his/her mobile phone on the object of interest.
Apple's patent FIG. 3 below shows an embodiment of a system setup which may be used in connection with aspects of the invention; FIG. 6 illustrates a four-camera mounted system on a vehicle.
There are many scenarios for this invention and you can read all about them here. Apple filed for this patent in Q2 2019.
Project Titan: Climate Control System
Today Apple was granted patent 10,752,082 titled "Climate control system with slit-vent fluid delivery." Vehicle climate control systems are designed to change environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature within a vehicle cabin. Many climate control systems adjust environmental conditions by providing thermally conditioned fluid, generally air, to the vehicle cabin using a series of ducts, outlets, and user-manipulated directional control devices. Apple's Project Titan granted patent relates to a new climate control system for future vehicles.
Apple's patent FIG. 1 below shows a schematic view of a climate control system for a vehicle; FIG. 2 shows a cutaway front perspective view of a slit-vent fluid delivery module in the climate control system of FIG. 1.
