Apple obtains permit to test self-driving cars

Montez Delgado | 16 Abril, 2017, 19:20

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.

Star Wars Rebels is ending with its fourth season
And the new piece information that came from the director, Rian Johnson, does clear the air about the fate of the Jedi. Recall that Star Wars: Battlefront II will be released on November 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

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.

I send my prayers of support and warmest thoughts to his family & loved ones who always came first in his life. I'm honored to have walked beside him during such a fruitful and yet challenging time in his life.

So, we'd like to wish Apple's self-driving vehicle - the one it's not building - success on California highways.

Apple, the report (and another from The New York Times) suggested, underestimated the complexity of the project and sought to scrap its transportation ambitions.
