  • Apple, Again, Grows Its California Self-driving Fleet, It Has the Second Biggest Fleet (Updated) - macReports

Apple Apple now has 55 vehicles and 83 drives under its permit to test autonomous vehicles, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) said in an emailed response to questions.

The company's fleet is growing faster than a hipster's beard; from three in April 2017 to 45 in March this year, and now 55 (which we assume are programmed to constantly remind their flannel-shirted occupants how cool, hip and trendy they're being). In addition to California, Waymo tests its cars on public roads in Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia. The vehicles are equipped with advanced LIDAR tools, along with several cameras to sense the entire driving environment. However, in the meantime it continues to grow its fleet of self-driving test cars - which are now the second largest in the state of California. Free for 14 days - no credit card required! Apple lags only behind GM Cruise, which has 104 test vehicles on the road.

Apple continues to expand the number of self-driving vehicles it is testing on the streets of Northern California, according to new numbers sourced from the California DMV. After starting with a secret operation to build a self-driving auto codenamed Project Titan in 2014, the project fell apart in two years.

Nowadays, Smartphone Giant Apple back in lamplight for its self-driving fleet. There is no indication that Apple is testing autonomous cars outside its home state.

"We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects. It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on".

As of now, the DMV has not issued any permits for complete driverless testing because for that to happen, companies must have to have a pre-testing of the vehicles in controlled conditions.
