Apple is working on a self-driving car, Reuters reports. An industry insider said Apple is gathering information and parts to make a prototype for a self-driving electric vehicle. Yesterday, a lead from the Wall Street Journal indicated Apple was working on an all-electric vehicle called Project Titan. That report explicitly stated a self-driving car was not part of Apple's plan.
It will still be years before Apple gets a car on the road
Apple can make money several ways with a self-driving car. "It's a software game. It's all about autonomous driving," the source told Reuters. A self-driving software system and other services like high-definition mapping and electric charging services can bring revenue to the company.
Reuters' report was not confirmed by Apple. If Apple is working on a self-driving vehicle, it will be years before the company gets one on the road.
