Apple focusing on self-driving technology, not building cars

Apple self driving car

We have been hearing rumors about Apple's Project Titan for the last few years, although the company previously scaled back its self driving auto plans and started developing the software rather than hardware.

Thanks to a New York Times report, we now know some of what happened and what Apple is doing now.

According to a report by The Verge, Apple is working to develop a "self-driving shuttle" that will be used internally to ferry its employees from Palo Alto to Infinite Loop.

The pinnacle of Apple's new plan will be a self-driving shuttle service, which will take Apple employees between old Apple buildings and its fancy new UFO headquarters. Project Titan, which has been long-rumored but completely unconfirmed by Apple, was reportedly focused on building an entire Apple Car from the ground up. However, head designer Jony Ive wanted a re-imagined, fully autonomous vehicle, despite the fact that no automaker or tech company has come close to that ideal. To that end, Apple has recently obtained a self-driving auto testing permit from California, with CEO Tim Cook publicly stating that the company is working on autonomous systems. Apple also looked at ways to hide a self-driving car's lidar array, which is a crucial but often unsightly component that gives such vehicles information about the environment around them.
