Apple expands self-driving fleet from 3 to 27 cars

Accepted submission by Anonymous Coward at 2018-01-25 23:31:03

Apple has an order of magnitude more cars [] in its self-driving fleet:

Apple has expanded its fleet of self-driving cars in California, registering an additional two dozen vehicles with the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. It’s a significant expansion for a company that has been seen as lagging in the race to build self-driving cars.

Apple originally registered [] three Lexus Rx450h SUVs under its permit to test autonomous vehicles in April 2017. Since then, it has acquired an additional 24 Lexus SUVs, according to the DMV: two in July, seven in October, two in November, six in December, and seven in January. The news was first reported by Bloomberg.

Apple has scaled back its self-driving car plans from creating a vehicle to creating software for them.
