Apple apparently have plans for a driverless car
An electric car being created by Apple could be a reality in as little as four years.
Code-named Titan, it has a ‘ship date’ of 2019 as the company is tripling the number of engineers on the project. The Wall Street Journal says that the date could just be a target for engineers to complete the design, not a release date for the car itself.
While Apple has never officially confirmed it’s planning on building a car, there are strong indications it’s at least interested in automotive (self-propelled) technology.
Rumour has it that Apple has hired a senior engineer from Elon Musk’s electric car maker Tesla. And last month, an Apple attorney met with officials at California’s Department of Motor Vehicles to discuss the state’s regulations for self-driving cars. Apple representatives also met in May with officials at an automotive testing facility located east of San Francisco.
There are a few images of what the Tech giants car might look like. One Young Journalist told the Walton Newsroom, “It sounds like an awesome idea but I think the design you have shown me looks a lot like a computer mouse!”
