Apple to begin testing self-driving cars on public roads

At this time, there are no details yet regarding the specs or features of Apple's self-driving auto.

Neil Cybart, an independent analyst who writes about Apple at the Web site Above Avalon, said the company appeared to have moved away from plans to build and sell cars like Tesla Motors Inc does. This is the most likely case for Apple right now, as it is definitely not in the car-making business.

Chinese tech giant Baidu, which is working on autonomous driving at its California research center, this week announced the acquisition of xPerception, a United States startup that provides visual perception software, along with services and devices for people who are visually impaired.

Even Gerard Piqué wanted to speak about the game and the referee and he tweeted the following from his Twitter account. The team was in ruins in the dressing room.

In October, Bloomberg reported that Apple's new approach would be to develop self-driving auto technology and sell it to automakers, instead of making its own vehicle from the wheels up. Under the state's testing regulations, all autonomous vehicles on the road will require a person behind the wheel to monitor testing. "The permit covers three vehicles, all 2015 Lexus RX450h, and six drivers", a DMV spokesperson said.

Truth be said, the license only confirms that Apple's autonomous vehicle initiative isn't completely dead.

Apple hasn't revealed precisely what its working on in the automobile area, although CEO Tim Cook has called it "interesting", and that the firm is constantly looking at new things. A March 30 copy of the website does not list Apple as having approval, indicating it was granted within the last two weeks. The company is only testing components of a self-driving auto. So, despite laying off or reassigning "hundreds" of people who had been working on the secretive Project Titan vehicle 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. Likewise, they are expected to submit annual reports that detail disengagements experienced during testing.
