Apple now has more than 50 autonomous cars on the road

The company hasn't been allowed to test self-driving cars without a human safety driver behind the wheel just yet. However, in the meantime it continues to grow its fleet of self-driving test cars - which are now the second largest in the state of California.

Apple originally registered three vehicles.

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. The next step, of course, is to test these sensor-equipped vehicles without drivers.

It's important to note that companies like Waymo and Uber used to have more self-driving cars in California.

With a new permit and expanded fleet, things are finally starting to look up for Apple after years of hardship.

Like other tech giants, Apple is keen to get into the vehicle space, with Tim Cook past year saying that autonomous systems are "a core technology" that the company views as "very important".

Nowadays, Smartphone Giant Apple back in lamplight for its self-driving fleet.

"We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects".

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.
