Apple's autonomous fleet is now the second-largest in the USA

Apple's autonomous fleet is now the second-largest in the USA

Little is known about Apple's auto platform, but according to California's Department of Motor Vehicles, Apple now has a total of 55 self-driving test vehicles and 83 authorised drivers. Apple has, again, expanded Its fleet of autonomous cars in California.

Thanks to the California DMV (and MacReports), we know that Apple now has a fleet of 55 vehicles, up from 27 in January, registered for autonomous testing with human safety drivers on public roads. As per the DMV, approximately 51 companies have registered 409 autonomous test vehicles in the state.

As of now, the DMV has not issued any permits for complete driverless testing because for that to happen, companies must have to have a pre-testing of the vehicles in controlled conditions.

It's important to note that companies like Waymo and Uber used to have more self-driving cars in California. "Apple is second only to General Motors which performs tests with Cruise - its self-driving division".

A company that manages their assets well will have a high return, while if manages their assets poorly will have a low return. This stock's price changed by +13.80% compared to its 90-day low, and moved down -0.47% comparing to its 90-day high price.

He added, "We sort of see autonomous cars as the mother of all AI projects It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on".

Uber left California in late 2016, taking its 16 vehicles with it, after the California DMV threatened to revoke its vehicle registrations.

What remains unclear is exactly what Apple's plans are for this new technology. Are they testing the Apple self-driving cars in some secret volcano lair off of the Northern California coast, gliding around in electric silence broken only by fits of maniacal laughter and occasional geological rumbling?

Tim Cook said, "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", Cook said last summer. Waymo applied for that permit.
