Apple is reportedly preparing to test its self-driving car

49 sec read

Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed by anyone, we’re all about 99.99% certain that Apple is “secretly” working on its own car, one that will be both fully-electric and self-driving. We don’t expect the vehicle to be unveiled for several years at least, as car development is an incredibly long and tedious process, but it looks like Apple is already trying to get its hands on an ultra-secret testing facility in the Bay Area so it can test the autonomous features of its car.

Apple is definitely working on a self-driving car project, and according to some new documents, Project Titan appears to be further along than anyone thought. Rumors of Apple’s car project first starting surfacing at the beginning of this year, with an announcement not expected until 2020 at the earliest, but the Guardian reports that Apple is already trying to secure a super-secret Bay Area test facility for the electric car. Apple engineers met with officials from GoMentum Station in May, reports the Guardian, claiming Apple plans to turn the 2,100-acre former naval base in near San Francisco into a high-security testing ground for autonomous vehicles. In documents obtained under a public records act request, Apple engineer Frank Fearon wrote: “We would … like to get an understanding of timing and availability for the space, and how we would need to coordinate around other parties who would be using [it].”
