Apple’s autonomous cars outnumber Waymo and Uber in California

By : |March 22, 2018 0

Barely days after one of Uber’s autonomous vehicles killed a pedestrian in Arizona, a new report claims that Apple has significantly increased the number of test vehicles in California. Apple has almost doubled its fleet of autonomous cars in California, as per the Financial Times report. The company had 27 self-driving cars until late January and now has 45 autonomous vehicles registered with California’s Department of Motor Vehicles.

According to the report, Apple is second only to General Motors’ Cruise Automation division, which has 110 cars. Apple is closely followed by Tesla which currently has 39 self-driving cars and Uber which has 29 cars. Uber has temporarily suspended its testing in the wake of the Arizona incident involving one of its cars.

With 45 test units, the iPhone maker now has more autonomous vehicles than Google’s Waymo sub-division and Uber, both of which have been in the business for quite long.

Apple’s autonomous vehicles program, codenamed “Project Titan” is reportedly made up of Lexus RX450h SUVs each of which is fitted with huge racks of LIDAR and radar sensors as well as cameras for omnidirectional visual imagery and sensing.
