Apple had applied for a vehicle navigation patent that was released by the US Patent and Trademark Office. These can allude to the communication of vehicle data during the navigation and movement of vehicles.

This marks the development of a communication system for automatically running vehicles. The new patient from Apple just does that as it brings out the issues and solutions for the U.S. roadway system.

Apple’s patent shows how the new vehicles need to put up data and information on the cloud while running and provide the impetus to the cloud computing environment. The logarithms thus needed to run autonomous vehicles can be dealt with properly. The visual data just helps in dealing with the associated problems and is based on the fleets of test vehicles.

The automobiles will also keep on retaining the data via downloads and these can be the maps, media, or other information about the cars. Wireless data like the 5G network can help in better connectivity but this patent aimed at the communication in vehicles will make the affair cheaper as the 5G data in-car plans are expensive. Wi-Fi and WiGig technologies also help in connectivity but are dependant on the external environment, weather challenges and several other factors .

Thus the vehicular data need to transfer fast and easily and the latest from Apple will deal with the technical glitches in autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles efficiently. The road infrastructure must be improved as well to supplement this transference of data. The optical wireless communication (OWC) will help in doing that better.

Real-time services which are infrastructural like the Over The Air (OTA), Smart technology in Parking, HD maps upload an download, 3D navigation has to be addressed in this regard.
