Apple's California Self-Driving Car Test Fleet Continues to Grow

Apple, Again, Grows Its California Self-driving Fleet, It Has the Second Biggest Fleet (Updated) - macReports

While California has begun allowing completely autonomous human-less vehicles to drive on public roads, the iPhone maker hasn't obtained the permits for this yet.

Behind Apple lags Waymo, which has 51 vehicles registered in California, and Tesla, which has 39 vehicles.

But now, the Cupertino tech giant is reaping the fruits of its ramped-up investment in the new technology, beating out Tesla and Waymo for the second-most self-driving auto permits with the DMV, according to a report from the Apple-focused tech blog Mac Reports.

Apple's fleet of self-driving testing vehicles continues to grow rapidly, with 55 self-driving cars registered with California as of May 9, according to DMV figures. Free for 14 days - no credit card required! Apple may have more self-driving cars than Waymo in California, but Waymo likely has more overall.

The tight-lipped tech giant has rapidly built up its self-driving vehicle program, known as Project Titan, since gaining a testing permit in April of past year. After starting with a secret operation to build a self-driving auto codenamed Project Titan in 2014, the project fell apart in two years.

Pep Guardiola reacted to the team's 106th league goal of the season by leaping out of his seat in the dugout and punching the air. Serie A: Benevento 1 (Diabate 87) bt Genoa 0; Inter Milan 1 (Rafinha 80) lost to Sassuolo 2 (Politano 25, Berardi 72).

Apple continues to expand the number of self-driving vehicles it is testing on the streets of Northern California, according to new numbers sourced from the California DMV.

Apple's quickly growing fleet of cars suggests that it's certainly taking self-driving development seriously. There is no indication that Apple is testing autonomous cars outside its home state.

Tim Cook said, "We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects".

Of course, having more automobiles on the road doesn't actually mean Apple has advanced beyond its peers.

Apple, however, has not yet received a permit to test self-driving cars without a driver behind the wheel.
