Apple is Building a Self-Driving Car, Says Reuters

Posted February 14, 2015 at 5:37pm by iClarified
Contrary to an earlier report from the WSJ, Reuters is now reporting that Apple is working on a self-driving electric car. The WSJ had previously indicated that "a self-driving car is not part of Apple’s current plan."

Technology giant Apple is learning how to make a self-driving electric car and is talking to experts at carmakers and automotive suppliers, an automotive source familiar with the talks said on Saturday.

Apple is exploring how to make an entire vehicle, not just software or individual components. "They don't appear to want a lot of help from carmakers", said a source. However, the company is gathering advice on parts and production methods. Sources say Apple is not interested in combustion engine technology or conventional manufacturing methods.

Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly approved the car project nearly a year ago and assigned VP Steve Zadesky to lead the group. Zadesky was given the go ahead to create a 1,000 person team that is said to work at a private location a few miles from Apple's corporate headquarters in Cupertino.

The project is codenamed 'Titan'. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

WhEn it comes to CarPlay, then yes. An apple products with a screen involves jailbroken. That's the main thing to make one involved here.

Ion glass, what failure. Self driving car? How can it go wrong when past Apple products were always a success. Sell your mind. It's outdated. Why would Apple sell stocks like this? The best iphone continues to grow, more use ability for Apple products continues to be added one by one, but best yet, sales for anything stay strong.

Once copied from windows. But why not? That's what makes a car.

Probably because the AI of autonomous vehicles wouldn't work well in small high-traffic areas. If you live in a big city, just think of all of the hand gesturing, eye contact, and hustling involved in every turn you make. Now imagine trusting a little camera and proximity sensor with interpreting all of this.
