【苹果新专利重塑了汽车座椅,发现事故时可“拥抱”司机以保证他们的安全】这家iPhone制造商提交了一份名为“动态座椅系统的触觉反馈”的文件,该文件描述了一种能够以各种方式与乘客互动的未来汽车座椅。座椅可能会通过振动信号提醒用户或折叠以使乘客处于更安全的位置。当汽车转向某个方向时,现有系统可能会发出哔哔声,但该专利提出的座椅如果车辆在行驶过程中漂移得太靠近车道线时会振动。这些工具可能用于提高自动驾驶汽车的安全性,苹果公司一直在通过配备传感器和摄像头的雷克萨斯SUV进行测试。

Apple patents shape changing car seat that can 'hug' drivers to try and keep them safe if it detects an accident

Apple has filed a patent that sheds new light on its rumored car plans.

The iPhone maker filed a document Tuesday titled 'Haptic feedback for dynamic seating system' that describes a futuristic car seat capable of interacting with passengers in various ways.

Seats might alert users via vibrating signals or fold to put the passenger in a more secure position.

The tools could potentially be used to improve safety in a self-driving car - something Apple has been testing via Lexus SUVs equipped with sensors and cameras.

The seats are fitted with sensors that would trigger a 'haptic feedback system' that vibrates to alert drivers when they should pay attention.

Existing systems might beep when a car veers in a certain direction, but the patent proposes seats that would vibrate if a vehicle drifts too close to a lane line while it's being driven.

'The method includes receiving external information relating to conditions that are external to the vehicle; determining that feedback is to be applied based on the external information; calculating a feedback level based on a degree of deviation of the external information from a predetermined state; and actuating a seating assembly based on the feedback level,' the patent noted.
