Apple cut over 200 employees this week from Project Titan, its autonomous vehicle group, reports CNBC.

An Apple spokesperson confirmed the dismissals in a statement provided to the site:

--
"We have an incredibly talented team working on autonomous systems and associated technologies at Apple. As the team focuses their work on several key areas for 2019, some groups are being moved to projects in other parts of the company, where they will support machine learning and other initiatives, across all of Apple," the spokesperson said.

"We continue to believe there is a huge opportunity with autonomous systems, that Apple has unique capabilities to contribute, and that this is the most ambitious machine learning project ever," they added.

The cuts follow the return of Doug Field, former head of Telsa Model 3 production, to Apple. Internally, the dismissals were reportedly seen as anticipated restructuring under the new leadership.

Field's return to Apple has sparked speculation that the company is still interested in making actual vehicles, despite reports that have claimed the project is abandoned. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
