Apple has reportedly filed a patent for an augmented reality (AR) windshield, known as Heads-up Display, for its autonomous cars. The windshield will support FaceTime calls between different vehicles, reports suggest.

According to a report in Patently Apple, Apple, who partnered with Volkswagen for self-driving cars, has filed a European Patent application that was published on August 1, 2018.

This display will also show maps, road conditions, and also tell the occupant about the forthcoming traffic.

The AR display will detect if the occupant in the self-driving car is stressed and will capture the stress levels from their breathing, body temperature, heart rate and fidgeting.

The system will also be capable of detecting and making adjustments to ensure that an anxious occupant stays calm.

Drive.ai, another self-driving car system, shows environment data and 3D driving an onboard display.
