  • Apple has over 50 self-driving cars on California roads

According to the Department of motor vehicles California, now registered in the state of unmanned vehicles is 409 units, a license for their testing got nearly 1600 drivers.

Apple originally registered three vehicles. Apple actually has more self-driving cars in testing than self-driving pioneers such as Waymo (51) and Tesla (39), as well as big automotive companies like BMW (12), Toyota (11), and Mercedes Benz (5). The vehicles are equipped with advanced LIDAR tools, along with several cameras to sense the entire driving environment.

This indicates a margin of error that's worth considering before rushing into fully self-driving trials; before the public can accept autonomous cars as a reliable alternative, companies need to gain its trust. By March of this year, the company had 45 cars on the road. However, those numbers may be somewhat misleading, since other companies are testing their self-driving fleet in other parts of the U.S.as well. This news makes it seem likely Apple will embrace it.




Apple's quickly growing fleet of cars suggests that it's certainly taking self-driving development seriously.

Didi previous year opened its main research facility in Mountain View of California, 860 kilometres north of Los Angeles, to focus on developing artificial intelligence, including autonomous driving.

Chief Executive Officer at Apple, Tim Cook called self-driving a core technology that we view as very important.

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. It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on". Waymo applied to the California DMV for a permit to test without human supervision last month, though it's not clear whether it has been accepted.
