Apple increases the number of vehicles to the test on the autonomous guide
That Apple is working on a project on autonomous guided vehicles is now a certainty, in spite of the company has never formalized any kind of novelty in this sense. In confirmation of the foregoing, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of California has confirmed that Apple now has 70 vehicles and 139 drivers allowed to test autonomous vehicles.
In the month of July, the number of cars in the park the Apple was stationary at 66, then the company has increased the cars to the test on the roads of California. Drivers have gone from 111 to 136 in two months.
At the moment, Apple is licensed to test autonomous vehicles, but has no permission to bring in the street car without a driver. This means that all the tests on the autonomous guide must be carried out with a driver certificate on board.
With the two 77 cars and 136 drive, Apple exceeds Tesla, which instead makes the test with 39 vehicles, and 92 drivers.
Many of the drive chosen by Apple for these tests are of the Nissan Leaf EV, suitably modified.
