We have been hearing rumors about the Apple Car for some time, the last thing we heard was that Apple had scaled back the project.
Recent rumors have suggested that Apple is now working on software for the Apple Car rather than the hardware, this may change in the future.
Apple recently wrote a letter to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and you can see a section from the letter below.
Apple uses machine learning to make its products and services smarter, more intuitive, and more personal. The company is investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and is excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation.
This is the first time that we have heard anything official from Apple about self driving cars or anything to do with the Apple Car.
The last report we heard about Apple’s project suggested that whilst they are only working on the software at the moment, they could return to hardware in the future.
