A new name has showed up on California's growing list of companies allowed to test autonomous vehicles in the state: Apple, The Verge says. Apple has been working on Project Titan for several years, but has never formally acknowledged it. Those that do own testing permits are required to submit regular reports to the California DMV, so more will be known about Apple's specific autonomous exploits when the company submits its first report.
"The permit covers three vehicles, all 2015 Lexus RX450h, and six drivers", said the spokesperson to Business Insider.
GM acquired Cruise Automation a year ago as part of its efforts to accelerate development of self-driving vehicle technology. So, despite laying off or reassigning "hundreds" of people who had been working on the secretive Project Titan auto project, Apple seems to have perhaps just pivoted and may be interested in developing its own version of a self-driving apparatus that they can then sell to other companies.
The iPhone 7 maker is the most recent entrant as of April 14, joining the likes of Nvidia, Faraday Future, Ford, Honda, BMW, Nissan, Tesla, Google and Mercedes Benz with permit in hand.
"Apple is investing heavily in machine learning and autonomous systems", the company said then.
She added that Apple's entry into the self-driving wars will push the industry to "provide a product that's not only safer, but more secure at a potentially even faster timeline than we're already experiencing". The company is only testing components of a self-driving vehicle. He expects the firm is creating a safe and effective autonomous-driving system based on computer vision, laser-based navigation and mapping, while also building an in-car environment for passengers that leverages Apple's dominant position in entertainment and workspace technology.

Assad's government has been blamed for a suspected sarin gas attack in Idlib province last week in which killed nearly 90 people. Lavrov on Friday accused the US and its allies of what he described as attempts to stymie an worldwide probe into the attack.
