Apple is building a self-driving car in Silicon Valley, and is scouting for secure locations in the Bay Area to test it, the Guardian has learned. Documents obtained by the Guardian show the oft-rumoured Apple car project appears to be further along than many suspected.
Self-driving? We haven’t heard that before. And the article doesn’t explain the basis for that thinking.1 I do take it with a grain of salt. But if an Apple car does launch by 2020, and if Google, Tesla, and others have self-driving models (or nearly-so), then … it’ll be an interesting situation.
Key things to remember: early reports are often wrong, plans change, and competition happens along many, many dimensions.
