Apple now has over 50 self-driving cars on the road in California, expanding autonomous testing

Apple, Again, Grows Its California Self-driving Fleet, It Has the Second Biggest Fleet (Updated) - macReports

That makes it the second largest fleet in the state, behind only GM's Cruise. Apple grew from 3 to 45 between April 2017 and March 2018, now this number increased to 55.

With 55 self-driving cars and 83 drivers, Apple now has the second highest number of self-driving cars in the U.S. state of California where autonomous vehicles are being tested. The recent fatal accident involving one of Uber's self-driving prototypes - apparently due to misaligned software - couldn't be stopped by the test driver in time. Waymo, for instance, has hundreds of autonomous vehicles being tested in Arizona.

Apple still lags far behind General Motor's Cruise division, which leads the pack with 104 vehicles. Citing information from the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the website reported that Apple has 55 test cars in California. That puts it four cars ahead of the latest figures we have for Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving vehicle division thought to be among the leaders in the sector.

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.

Mourinho said: "Moving forward I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist". I have nobody in the world of football ready to be assistant manager.

Chief Executive Officer at Apple, Tim Cook called self-driving a core technology that we view as very important.

"We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects. It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on".

Apple has 83 safety drivers taking part in this project who will be supervising the vehicles. Waymo applied for that permit.
