Apple, Again, Grows Its California Self-driving Fleet, It Has the Second Biggest Fleet (Updated) - macReports
In March this year, that number was at 45. According to the DMV figure, Apple has bigger self-driving vehicle fleet in California than Waymo, Toyota, BMW and many more that has makes it the second largest fleet in the state. The DMV has now approved a resounding 53 companies for self-driving auto permits, resulting in 409 autonomous vehicles with 1,573 safety drivers. In April 2017, Apple had just three vehicles registered with the DMV.
Currently, the California DMV has provided permits to 53 companies for self-driving cars that include safety drivers, resulting in a total of 409 vehicles and 1,573 safety drivers in the US. The number of cars is more than companies like Google, Uber, Waymo. Apple lags only behind GM Cruise, which has 104 test vehicles on the road.
We do know that the autonomous auto scene is heating up - Tesla and Drive.Ai are lagging behind Apple, but fellow California-native GM Cruise leads the pack with 104 vehicles with self-driving capacity.
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 chose to this project. 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.
Nonetheless, it underlines how seriously Apple is taking this technology. "It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on".
Alongside the new cars, Apple has 83 drivers (compared to GM's frankly ludicrous 407) who need to sit inside every time they move.
