Apple Has Over 50 Self-Driving Cars On Public Roads Now

Apple Holds Product Launch Event At New Campus In Cupertino There is definitely a non-zero chance that these two are testing self-driving cars in a volcano lair

Apple is said to employ 83 drivers for its fleet, far less than the 407 of GM or even the 338 Waymo drivers with approved permits. 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. In April 2017, Apple had just three vehicles registered with the DMV.

Apple has more than doubled the number of its self-driving cars, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has confirmed.

While this suggests Apple will continue to expand its self-driving auto initiative, it also means that Apple now has the second largest fleet of autonomous vehicles in California. 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). That puts it four cars ahead of the latest figures we have for Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving auto division thought to be among the leaders in the sector.

Uber left California in late 2016, taking its 16 vehicles with it, after the California DMV threatened to revoke its vehicle registrations. MacReports first reported some of the new details of Apple's fleet.

Pakistan reeling at 21-3 in chase of Ireland's 160
It is the first test match century for Ireland , which helped them take a 139-run lead into day five, on 319-7 after 122 overs. In a historic first, Ireland is now hosting Pakistan in a Test fixture, after receiving the status from ICC a year ago .

Apple hasn't really detailed its plans for the self-driving project that it has got going on but the company is steadily increasing the number of resources that it has made a decision to this project. Apple CEO Tim Cook has called self-driving "a core technology that we view as very important".

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

Each participant in this self-driving auto race must have a safety driver in the vehicle during testing.
