Apple Authorized to Test Independent Cars in California

While the technology company headquartered in Cupertino, Northern California, did not comment on the latest development, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in the Golden State on the US West Coast listed Apple on its website as the latest one getting an Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permit. Apple has remained secretive about its self-driving project.

Apple has obtained a permit to test self-driving vehicles, putting the iPhone maker in competition with Google and others. Now out of nowhere there is proof that Apple is working on self-driving cars. Apple registered six drivers that monitor these cars.

"Even if they have a permit to test, it is most likely related to iOS, navigation, cameras, and sensors used in some type of autonomous vehicle", says Creative Strategies president Tim Bajarin.

Based on Apple's history, it likes to be in control of both the hardware and software sides of its products to create the best experience for customers, he noted.

Not all the team members were on hand to accept personal congratulations from President Donald Trump. Tight End Martellus Bennett told reporters after the Super Bowl: "It is what it is.

As per The Verge report, "Late previous year, Apple submitted a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in which it said that it was "investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and is excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation".

According to reports, Apple will soon commence the testing of its self-driving vehicle software platform on public streets. That seems to suggest that earlier reports that Apple is backing away from auto development and refocusing on self-driving vehicle tech were accurate.

According to Apple spokesperson, test drive should improve artificial intelligence systems that must learn the ways to interact with an unpredictability of human drivers.

Officially, Apple has remained silent on its ambitions despite recurring rumors that it is working on an automobile project titled "Titan".
