Apple expands its team dedicated to autonomous driving

Posted Aug 12, 2019 by Steven Wilson.

What is Apple preparing for the autonomous driving market? It’s still a mystery, but one thing is certain: the Cupertino company is very busy, and it continues to strengthen its equipped dedicated to the project. Here is the new information from the front.

At present, no one really knows what the Cupertino company has planned for autonomous cars. That said, it seems that despite the secrecy surrounding the project and the vision of Apple, the company is progressing quite significantly, since according to several reports, Apple has further strengthened its team dedicated to the famous autonomous driving project. If we believe the latest figures from the California Department of Motor Vehicles, Apple has enrolled no less than 33 new drivers to place them in the cockpits of fleet vehicles of the Cupertino company, which today has no less than 69 cars throughout the state.

Apple continues to expand its team working on autonomous driving

These numbers contrast sharply with previous reports dating back to a few months ago that Apple had completely reorganized this team, assigning its members to other projects. At that time we along with others strongly suspected Apple was therefore winding down its autonomous car project. However, these new hires now suggest the opposite: Apple could actually accelerate its autonomous driving project.

The project is still as mysterious as ever

No one knows what will be the end product of this mysterious project. We don’t know if Apple intends to design its own autonomous car or if the giant is working on a system that could be embedded in existing cars, like the CarPlay system. There is no doubt that the Cupertino company will keep the secret as long as possible, at least as long as it has nothing very successful in showing the world, as is always the case with its new projects. Patience, patience… the dream of an autonomous car with the apple is in any case still allowed. 🙂
