According to a recent report by Wired, Apple has significantly increased its efforts in autonomous vehicle testing over the past year. The tech giant has been quietly working on its self-driving car project, known as “Project Titan,” since 2014, and it seems that progress is being made.
While Apple has not officially confirmed its plans for a self-driving car, the company has been granted permits by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to test autonomous vehicles on public roads. These permits have allowed Apple to expand its testing fleet and gather valuable data in real-world driving conditions.
Apple’s autonomous vehicle testing has primarily taken place in California, where the company is headquartered. However, it is not limited to just one location. Apple has also been testing its self-driving technology in other states across the United States.
The increased focus on autonomous vehicle testing aligns with Apple’s broader push into the automotive industry. In addition to self-driving technology, the company has been exploring other automotive-related projects, such as electric vehicle batteries and advanced automotive software.
While Apple’s self-driving car project has faced its fair share of challenges and setbacks, the company remains committed to developing innovative transportation solutions. With the intensification of its autonomous vehicle testing, Apple is positioning itself to be a significant player in the future of transportation.
