Apple Has Bigger Autonomous Car Fleet Than Uber, Tesla, Google

Apple Has Bigger Autonomous Car Fleet Than Uber, Tesla, Google

That makes it the second largest fleet in the state, behind only GM's Cruise.

Apple still hasn't publicly announced its plans when it comes to autonomous cars.

Everyone's favorite purveyor of slick glass-and-aluminum computers and phones has been rumored to be in the self-driving vehicle game for years now, but what do we actually know?

Apple's object-detection software.AppleThese permits enable autonomous vehicles to legally drive on California roads as long as they have a driver behind the wheel ready to take over at the first sign of trouble.

Behind Apple lags Waymo, which has 51 vehicles registered in California, and Tesla, which has 39 vehicles. We also know that the company has 83 drivers that are certified to serve as the safety drivers for these cars. However, those numbers may be somewhat misleading, since other companies are testing their self-driving fleet in other parts of the well. It does not appear on the May 9 list seen by Business Insider.

Apple's mysterious fleet is perhaps one of the biggest secrets the company has held, and the company has yet to confirm this new report.

Code-named "Project Titan", Apple's self-driving programme's fleet is reportedly made up of Lexus RX450h SUVs, each of which is fitted with huge racks of LIDAR and radar sensors as well as cameras. Apple CEO Tim Cook has called self-driving "a core technology that we view as very important". All Apple's vehicles are being tested with a safety driver inside.

"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". Will Apple partner with other auto manufacturers, or will they develop their own vehicles? Waymo applied for that permit.
