Apple studies self-driving car | Reuters


curated by | February 15, 2015

“Technology giant Apple is looking beyond mobile devices to learn how to make a self-driving electric car, and is talking to experts at carmakers and automotive suppliers, a senior auto industry source familiar with the discussions said on Saturday.”

John Payne’s insight:
In a parallel article, the Verge reports: “Apple has apparently had this in the hopper for a while: the report claims that Tim Cook signed off on Titan nearly a year ago, giving ex-Ford engineer and current Apple exec Steve Zadesky a team of 1,000 staff from across a variety of departments in the company. In recent months, company staff have visited contract manufacturers that could potentially build a car (or components of a car) on Apple’s behalf; one company that WSJ names is Magna Steyr, which has built cars for Mercedes and BMW in the past, among others.”
