Apple has confirmed they are working on self driving car technology.
This was revealed in a statement by Tim Cook on Tuesday, saying Apple is focusing on autonomous cars in this time when there are three vector of changes happening at the same time.
He added that it’s amazing driving electric cars and stop at the filing station or what ever they call it to refill.
Tim Cook said; “I think there is a major disruption looming there. Not only for self-driving cars, but also the electrification piece.
“If you’ve driven an electric car, it’s actually a marvellous experience. It’s also a marvellous experience to stop at the filling station, gas station, whatever you want to call it. Plus you have ridesharing on top of this. So you’ve got three vectors of change happening generally in the same time frame.
“As we look at it, what we’re focusing on, what we’ve talked about focusing on publicly, is we’re focusing on autonomous systems.
“Clearly one purpose of autonomous systems is self driving cars. There are others. We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects. It’s probably one of the most difficult AI projects actually to work on.
So autonomy is something that’s incredibly exciting for us, we’ll see where it takes us. We’re not really saying from a product point of view what we will do but we are being straight forward that it’s a core technology that we view as very important.”
