Apple 's autonomous car project is not a secret for anyone who is pursuing the company thoroughly. Apple is doing autonomous testing using the Lexus SUV running in the city of Cupertino.
Reported MacRumorsOne of Apple 's autonomous vehicles is involved in the accident and the company needs to report this information to DMV.
The accident occurred at about 2:58 on August 24, 2018. Fortunately, no one was hurt and actually trying to retreat on another vehicle while trying to join another road. Apple's test cars were running less than a mile, but they were hit at about 15 mph with the Nissan Reef in 2016.
While preparing to join Lawrence Expressway South from Kifer Road at 2:58 pm on August 24, Apple's autonomous vehicle was rear ended. Apple test vehicles were running at less than 1 mph waiting for a safe clearance to complete the merge when the 2016 Nissan Leaf touched Apple's test vehicle at about 15 mph.
Apple's autonomous vehicles are equipped with sensors and cameras that enable autonomous driving functions. However, during this testing phase, two drivers must be in the car.
We finally reported that Apple currently has 50 autonomous vehicles tested. At this time, it is not clear what Apple plans using autonomous vehicle technology. Whether you are trying to license software to other manufacturers or whether the company is planning to build your own hardware in cooperation. If Apple is about to release its own hardware, it should be before 2025.
