Meet the iCar? Apple to test self-driving vehicles in California
The iPhone maker has been awarded a permit to test autonomous cars, moving into a highly competitive space that includes Google, Tesla and Ford
Apple is joining the fiercely competitive race to design self-driving cars, raising the possibility that a company that has already reshaped culture with its iPhone may try to transform transportation, too.
Ending years of speculation , Apple’s late entry into a crowded field was made official Friday with the disclosure that the California department of motor vehicles had awarded a permit for the company to start testing its self-driving car technology on public roads in the state.

Is Apple self-driving car software coming? DMV permit suggests so
Apple wants to get on those California roads. (credit: nrg_crisis (off and on) )
On Friday, California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) updated its website to reflect that Apple now has a permit to test self-driving cars on public roads.
Apple has been hiring automotive experts—particularly those with experience in autonomous driving—for years. (In 2015, Tesla CEO Elon Musk even taunted Apple by saying, “If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple.”) But Apple has long kept quiet about its aspirations. That began to change in December, when the company wrote a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration saying that it was “investing heavily” in machine learning to support autonomous systems, especially in transportation.
The update on the California DMV website confirms that after years of speculation, Apple is serious about building self-driving car software.

Apple is definitely testing self-driving cars, California DMV confirms
The rumor mill has spun for years that Apple is developing a car, or at least advanced tech for vehicles, and today we have hard evidence the tech giant is hitting the road with its very own ride. And we're not talking a run-of-the-mill sedan here: Apple is testing self-driving cars.
According to an updated page on the typically dry California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website, the agency has issued an Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permit to Apple, allowing it to conduct self-driving car tests in the state. 
The iPhone 7 maker is the newest entrant as of April 14, joining the likes of Nvidia, Faraday Future, Ford, Honda, BMW, Nissan, Tesla, Google and Mercedes Benz with self-driving permit in hand.
As with every other company that's testing autonomous vehicles in California, Apple must submit a report on traffic accidents involving its cars within 10 business days. Apple also needs to turn in an annual report on disengagements, or every time a human driver takes over for the self-driving system.
Apple on the road
Best known for the iconic iPhone, which turns 10 this year, Mac computers and the Apple Watch , vehicles are a whole new product category for Apple, and one it's taken its sweet time to develop. 
That's Apple's modus operandi with nearly every device, including rumored work in virtual reality , but it seems now Apple is ready to take its show on the road, and make its cars a reality.
It's no surprise Apple would include self-driving features in its vehicles considering the market's trend towards autonomy, with a growing number of car makers adding driverless tech following Tesla and Google's lead. 
Apple's mystery mini van, equipped with self-driving tech apparatus
Though signs here and there over the years have indicated Apple has four-wheelers on the brain, we started seeing mystery vans equipped with LIDAR and other tech indicative of self-driving systems last year. One van was spotted cruising near Apple offices in Sunnyvale, California. 
Those vans, it turned out, were working on Apple Maps, but it's possible they were also testing systems that would one day make it into a self-driving car.
With its freshly minted permit, we could soon see patented Apple self-driving cars on California roads. We'll keep our eyes out (and let us know if you see one!), though don't expect to be able to buy your own iCar for a few more years. 
Up next for Apple is the iPhone 8

Apple’s self-driving car project now has a permit in California
The Apple Car is alive — whatever it is.
Apple has received a permit to test self-driving cars in California, according to the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles website . It joins other tech companies, such as Google, Uber, Baidu and Nvidia — plus the usual carmakers, including Tesla — on the list.
This suggests Apple’s ambitions in the auto industry are alive, despite some reported upheaval in the project , code-named “Project Titan.”
Reports last year centered on changing leadership and shifting focus within the project , which is under the command of veteran Apple executive Bob Mansfield.
Still, as Apple looks for its next major growth driver after the iPhone — and as cars increasingly become computers — it’s easy to see why the company would be interested.
Apple, famously secretive about future products, hasn’t formally announced any plans to design or build a car or a self-driving software system. (Its permit covers three Lexus RX450h automobiles from 2015, and six drivers, according to the FT .)
But it has hinted at its interest for some time. “The car is the ultimate mobile device,” Apple Senior Vice President Jeff Williams said at our Code Conference in 2015.
Apple also wrote a letter to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last November, commenting on its proposed automated-vehicles policy, saying it’s “excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation” and that “new entrants should be treated equally” for testing on public roads.

Apple gets DMV permission to test autonomous cars in California
Apple is now permitted to test self-driving cars in California, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles site revealed today.
The DMV’s autonomous vehicle tester program includes a total of 30 companies, among them Tesla, Google, Uber, Ford, Volkswagen, Mercedes — and now, Apple.
While Apple has never formally announced plans to release a self-driving car, the company’s efforts have attracted major attention — as unreleased Apple products often do.
The newly public permit allows Apple to test autonomous cars on public California roads, but requires the company to report accidents within 10 business days. The program also requires Apple to send in yearly reports documenting self-driving technology failures, including how often human drivers take over for the autonomous technology (the state calls this a “disengagement”).
As Apple-made autonomous cars hit the streets, these rules should force Apple’s successes and failures out into the open, a significant change for the notoriously secretive company.

Apple has an official permit to test self-driving cars in California, DMV confirms (AAPL)
AP
Apple has received a permit to test autonomous cars in California, the first official confirmation that the maker of the iPhone sees the century-old automobile as a product that's ripe for reinvention and a reflection of its need to find new markets to sustain its growth. 
The California DMV updated its website on Friday, adding Apple's name to 29 other companies testing self-driving vehicles in the state, including Tesla and Google.
The permit is confirmation that Apple has been quietly working on self-driving car technology, something that the company has not previously discussed in public or confirmed beyond an advisory letter to the NHTSA in December . 
The DMV says that any manufacturer of autonomous technologies must apply to the California DMV before it can test a vehicle in autonomous mode on public roads.
"Today, April 14, 2017, California Department of Motor Vehicles issued Apple Inc. an autonomous vehicle test permit. The permit covers three vehicles, all 2015 Lexus RX450h, and six drivers," a DMV spokeswoman told Business Insider. 
Apple declined to comment about whether Apple is currently testing autonomous vehicles on public roads and pointed to a previous statement that it is "investing heavily in machine learning and autonomous systems."
Confirmation
LexusSilicon Valley and Detroit are engaged in a high-stakes race to develop self-driving cars, with companies like Google, Uber, Ford, Tesla and GM all working on autonomous vehicle technology. Prototype cars, with clunky radars, sensors and cameras rigged on the roofs and the sides, are a common sight on the streets of San Francisco.
And although there are still numerous technological, as well as political and regulatory obstacles to clear before self-driving cars become a widespread product for the masses, analysts believe the market will be worth tens of billions of dollars in the coming years. 
Apple's work in the automotive world is an open secret, but the company has never officially confirmed the existence of a project before Friday. 
"It's going to be Christmas Eve for a while," Apple CEO Tim Cook once  said  in response to a question about the project.
Apple has what appears to be a mostly separate organization of 1000 employees working on what it calls "Project Titan" in Sunnyvale, California and other satellite offices. Apple has also been linked to a private course in California where secretive companies test self-driving cars. 
Last year, the project hit some snags, though, and Apple was forced to bring on Bob Mansfield, a respected engineer, to cut back the scope of the project and set new goals, according to reporting from Bloomberg . Apple is believed be be primarily working on autonomous software, instead of a full car, but the project is still shrouded in secrecy. 
Apple is expected to assess the progress it has made on self-driving cars at the end of this year,  according to Bloomberg .

159 d ago TechRadar :: Self-driving cars will soon be on the streets of New York
Read on TechRadar | Share | Tweet

If you want to test out your self-driving car in the US, you need a special permit from the authorities in California, Nevada or Arizona. Well, you can now add New York to that list, as the state has announced its intention to start accepting applications from companies looking to run trials of autonomous vehicles.
"With this action, we are taking a careful yet balanced approach to incorporating autonomous vehicles on our roads to reduce dangerous driving habits, decrease the number of accidents and save lives on New York roadways," NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said, TechCrunch reports .
Particularly in New York City itself, the roads should pose a whole new challenge to cars used to tootling around the vast expanses of some of the other states. As usual, a human driver will have to be present at all times while the cars are being tested.
Apply now
Applicants are bound to give New York regulators reports on how the tests have been going, with permits expiring in April 2018 (though they can then be extended). As yet we don't know who'll take New York state up on its offer, but it's likely that Google, Tesla , Uber, Apple and others will be interested.
"We need to make sure these vehicles are safely tested on our roads, while providing opportunities for the public to become familiar with this technology," said the DMV's Terri Egan , adding that "self-driving cars will one day likely be commonplace".
If you live in New York or plan to take a trip there soon, keep your eyes open for autonomous vehicles patrolling the streets - you might even get a ride in one. Meanwhile, California's self-driving car regulations are currently under review .

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on New York on Wednesday said the state would allow testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads, potentially leaving perplexed New Yorkers wondering whom to flip off when they jaywalk in front of a car without a driver.
"We are taking a careful yet balanced approach to incorporating autonomous vehicles on our roads to reduce dangerous driving habits, decrease the number of accidents, and save lives on New York roadways," Cuomo said in a statement.
New York is accepting applications from companies interested in testing the vehicles through a yearlong pilot program.
The crowded race to develop self-driving technology has sped ahead despite controversy caused by a handful of accidents, the idea of not having humans controlling vehicles physically, and new infrastructure needs.
Supporters say it can reduce driver error and make roads safer and more efficient. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation related to autonomous vehicles, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
New York's program requires manufacturers to adhere to numerous oversight measures and restrictions that could raise objections from an industry that prefers private, real-world testing.
Companies in New York must have a $5 million insurance policy, submit reports to the state, be overseen by the state police, and pay the state police for supervising each test.
Testing also cannot take place in construction or school zones — which take up huge swaths of land in New York City — and must adhere to a predesignated route shared in advance with the state.
California's autonomous-vehicle testing regulations went into effect in September 2014, but the road to a full rollout has not always been smooth.
Companies developing self-driving car technology, including Apple, Tesla, Ford, Uber, Toyota, and Waymo, the self-driving car unit of Google parent company Alphabet, have all suggested changes to California's latest proposed policy to allow real-world use and testing of vehicles without steering wheels.
Last year, New York City said it was moving forward with a federally managed program to design and test so-called connected car technology, a key building block of autonomous technology.
The city is installing special traffic lights, which can connect to vehicles wirelessly, throughout midtown Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
Up to 8,000 vehicles, including taxis, trucks, cars, and buses, are also being outfitted with technology that will let them communicate with one another.

Read on TechRadar | Share | Tweet

It appears Apple isn't the only gadget maker eyeing autonomous vehicle, as main rival Samsung just gained approval to test out a self-driving car of its own.
South Korea's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport granted Samsung approval to test out an autonomous vehicle on public roads, according to The Korea Herald .
The vehicle, reportedly a commercial Hyundai car fitted with sensors and cameras, will operate using deep-learning technologies to help improve how it navigates difficult conditions — such as inclement weather — without the need for driver intervention.
Samsung isn't the only company with newly earned permission to test driverless cars in South Korea. Roughly 20 other businesses have been approved by the Ministry since February 2016. Hyundai, another South Korean auto maker, was the first gain permission.
With the likes of Tesla, Google, Nvidia and now Apple testing self-driving cars in California and elsewhere, the race to see who can deliver the best autonomous tech (that's also safe, mind you) is definitely on. Will Samsung and Apple's next showdown be over who rules the road with industry-leading self-driving car technology? It certainly looks like it's shaping up that way.

Less than a fortnight after it was confirmed that, indeed, Apple is testing out self-driving cars , it appears we have our first look at what the iPhone maker is taking on the road.
A white Lexus RX450h SUV was spotted leaving an Apple facility in Silicon Valley, sporting sensors, cameras, and other gear used in autonomous driving research, as seen by a person who sent the the information and images to Bloomberg .
The report adds the Lexus is rigged with third-party sensors, including a Velodyne LIDAR unit. It appears no proprietary or custom-made equipment was on the car, and you can see it for yourself in the footage below:
Of course, Apple loves to keep its projects in the darkest of dark until its time for an official unveiling (see also: Apple's supposed interest in VR ) so there's no telling if Apple is planning to get into the automotive game or just make its own self-driving software for other manufacturers.
Apple isn't the only company cleared to test self-driving cars in California. Companies ranging from the usual suspects like Ford, Honda, BMW, Nissan, and Mercedes-Benz to newcomers like Tesla, Google, Faraday Future and Nvidia have also received their autonomous-driver permits, making the race to driverless driving a rapidly growing one.

174 d ago Business Insider :: An urban designer explains why self-driving cars will only make life worse
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Peter Calthorpe isn't interested in the wonder of self-driving cars picking kids up from school or fetching couch potatoes their fast food order.
As the urban designer relayed from this year's TED conference , what autonomous vehicles offer in terms of convenience is far outweighed by their isolating effect on people's daily lives.
"Putting people in their private bubbles, whether they have a steering wheel or not, is the wrong direction," Calthorpe told TED chief executive Chris Anderson after his talk.
Transportation enthusiasts often paint the cities of tomorrow as bustling with four-wheeled vehicles but devoid of people to pilot them. Private companies like Uber and Ford see cities as hubs for AI-powered transit. Without humans to run red lights or forget a turn signal, accidents and traffic will be relics of a bygone era.
Calthorpe doesn't dispute those breakthroughs, but he does ask people to reconsider their priorities as that future draws closer. His talk implicated sprawl — both low-density suburban sprawl found in the US and high-density urban sprawl found in China — as the "villain" of our urbanizing planet .
Self-driving cars "will revitalize sprawl in a way that I'm deeply frightened," Calthorpe said.
People will treat their cars as butlers or chauffeurs, he fears, giving people even less of an incentive to put down their phones and laptops and talk to their neighbors face-to-face.
Instead, he'd like to see cities become more walkable, more bike-friendly.
During his talk, he discussed how a decreasing percentage of city-dwellers own a car, but nearly 100% of the streets are still dedicated to driving. He says the imbalance ought to tilt more toward pedestrian-friendly modes of transit.
They might be less flashy, but they are the kind Calthorpe says help societies truly thrive.

177 d ago Co.Design :: Why Is This Self-Driving Car Confused?
Read on Co.Design | Share | Tweet

One photo on display as part of James Bridle’s new solo exhibition at Berlin’s Nome Gallery, which opened on Friday, will undoubtedly inspire some empathy with the self-driving car. Foregrounding Mount Parnassus in Greece, the car stands frozen in place in the center of a parking lot. It is circled in two rings of salt. One dotted line, on the outside, has invited it in. But a solid line, on the inside, is prohibiting it from going out.
Thanks to the logic of its machine-learning mind, the car is trapped—restricted by these two conflicting rules of the road and lacking the autonomy to override them.
[Photo: James Bridle]Bridle snapped the picture, entitled Autonomous Trap 001, while taking the car on a joyride near his home in Athens. While it’s not a totally autonomous vehicle yet, Bridle is trying to train it to become one, as part of broader research on building his own self-driving car. To him, the photo embodies the theme of that work: exploring how to bridge an understanding between the way machines see the world and how humans see the world, and the effect that divide has on society. He makes the point that the photo works because even people who have no deep understanding of how autonomous vehicles operate can understand the situation the car is in.
“[The photo] uses the bits of our environment that we share with the car,” he says. “There’s a common language that originates with the human” so he or she can see what the machine sees.
Indeed, looking at the photo you can’t help but feel bad for a car that’s entrapped by its own learned behavior. Practically speaking, Bridle says, it is a classic example of a machine learning technique that puts the machine in adversarial situations so it will learn how to overcome them in the future. Bridle has been been using artificial intelligence in his work for over a decade—he’s known for his futuristic, technologically progressive works, as well as coining the term “ New Aesthetic “—but he says machine learning has opened up even more terrain for his artistic work.
Using open-source machine intelligence software like Google’s  TensorFlow  and self-driving car software  Comma AI , Bridle is training his car to become autonomous and has opened up the code he has developed  to the public on Github . While Bridle says he will never actually ride in a self-driving car that uses software written by him (“that would be a suicide wish”), he’s interested in what he is learning while training it. In the process, he has also develop an Android app for tracking movement, speed, and steering angle for neural network training.
The real purpose of the Autonomous Trap 001 piece, however, is more conceptual than practical. The salt ring is not meant to aid in his pursuit to develop a self-driving car. Rather, he wants to explore what happens when potentially dangerous or disruptive technology is introduced to society. “The two responses I explore here are learning to do it yourself, or working actively to resist it,” he says.
In other words, in our dystopian, machine-led future, humans may soon need to learn how to assert themselves over their vehicles. If you don’t learn code, you should at least learn how to boobie trap it.

176 d ago Re/code :: Of course Apple could build a self-driving car — but should it?
Read on Re/code | Share | Tweet

Bottom line: Apple could really use a completely different kind of hardware hit.
A version of this essay was originally published at Tech.pinions , a website dedicated to informed opinions, insight and perspective on the tech industry.
As your mother or other caregiver probably told you as a child, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you necessarily should.
So, given last week’s news that Apple has obtained a permit to test-drive three autonomous cars on public streets and highways in California, the existential question that now faces the company’s Project Titan car effort is, should they build it?
Of course, the answer is very dependent on what “it” turns out to be. There has been rampant speculation on what Apple’s automotive aspirations actually are, with several commentaries suggesting that those plans have morphed quite a bit over the last few years and are now very different (and perhaps more modest) than they originally were.
There is actually some surprisingly large pent-up demand (in theory at least) for an Apple-branded car.
While some Apple fans are still holding out hope for a fully designed Apple car, complete with unique exterior and interior physical design, a (likely) electric drivetrain and a complete suite of innovative software-driven capabilities — everything from autonomous- and assisted-driving features, the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system and more — other observers are a bit less enthusiastic. In fact, the more pragmatic view of Apple creating autonomous-driving software for existing cars — especially given the news on their public test driving effort — has been getting much more attention recently.
Regardless of what the specific elements of the automotive project turn out to be, there remains the philosophical question of whether or not this is a good thing for Apple to do. On the one hand, there are quite a few major tech players who are trying their hands at autonomous driving and connected car-related developments. In fact, many industry participants and observers see it as a critical frontier in the overall development and evolution of the tech industry. From that perspective, it certainly makes sense for Apple to, at the very least, explore what’s possible and to make sure that some of its key competitors can’t leapfrog them in important new consumer technologies.
In addition, this could be an important new business opportunity for Apple, particularly critical now that many of its core products for the last decade have either started to slow or are on the cusp of hitting peak shipment levels. Bottom line: Apple could really use a completely different kind of hardware hit.
The prospect is particularly alluring, because some research conducted by Technalysis Research last fall shows that there is actually some surprisingly large pent-up demand (in theory, at least) for an Apple-branded car. In fact, when asked about the theoretical possibility of buying just such an automobile, 12 percent of the 1,000-person sample said they would “definitely” buy an Apple car. (Note that 11 percent said they would definitely buy a Google-branded car.) Obviously, until such a beast becomes a reality, this is a completely speculative exercise, but remember that Tesla currently has a tiny fraction of one percent of car sales in the U.S.
Apple could come up with some type of co-branded partnership arrangement with a willing major carmaker, but does that seem like something Steve would do?
Look at the possibility of an Apple car from another perspective, however, and a number of serious questions quickly come to mind. First is the fact that it’s really hard to build and sell a complete car if you’re not in the auto industry. From component and supplier relationships, to dealer networks, through government-regulated safety requirements, completely different manufacturing processes and significantly different business and profitability models, the car business is not an easy one to successfully enter at a reasonable scale. Sure, there’s the possibility of finding the auto equivalent of an ODM (Original Device Manufacturer) to help with many of these steps, but there’s no Foxconn equivalent for cars in terms of volume capacity. At best, production levels would have to be very modest for an ODM-built Apple car, which doesn’t seem like an Apple thing to do.
Apple could come up with some type of co-branded partnership arrangement with a willing major carmaker, but does that seem like something Steve would do?
Speaking of which, the very public nature of the auto business and the need to reveal product plans and subject products for testing well in advance of their release is also very counter to typical Apple philosophy. Similarly, while creating software solutions for existing carmakers is technically intriguing, the idea of Apple merely supplying a component on products that are branded by someone else seems incredibly unlikely. Plus, most car vendors are eager to maintain their brand throughout the in-car experience, and giving up the key software interfaces to a “supplier” isn’t attractive to them either.
So, if it doesn’t make sense or seem feasible to offer just a portion of an automotive experience, and if doing a complete branded car seems out of reach, what other options are left? (And let’s be honest — in an ideal situation, autonomous driving capabilities should be completely invisible to the driver, so what’s the brand value for offering that?)
Theoretically, Apple could come up with some type of co-branded partnership arrangement with a willing major carmaker, but again, does that seem like something Steve would do?
There’s no doubt Apple has the technical ability and financial wherewithal to pull off an Apple car if they really wanted to, but the practical challenges it faces suggest it’s probably not the company’s best option.

176 d ago Business Insider :: Apple is catastrophically late to the self-driving car game (AAPL, GOOG, TSLA, F, GM)
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Motor Trend
After thinking that the Apple Car — "Project Titan" — was pretty much dead, we saw it crawl from the grave via a filing in California to test a self-driving technology on public roads.
With this move, Apple joins a host of other automakers and tech companies that are already permitted to test their autonomous experiments on the Golden State's highways and byways.
And thanks to some intrepid reporting by Business Insider's Kif Leswing , we now have some idea of what Apple is actually up to. 
The tech giant is clearly developing some type of self-driving car technology. That much is obvious from the test vehicle setup, which consists of a Lexus SUV with self-driving controls in the backseat. Up front, it's a regular old steering wheel, so that if anything goes wrong, a human driver can take over. I'm pretty sure that the "fly by wire" system is something that Apple has engineered in a bolt-on capacity.
California DMVThere are some serious problems with this approach. For starters, bolt-on technology doesn't work, you have to develop a self-driving technology that's designed to be integrated into a vehicle as it's assembled — but that's beside the point.
The real takeaway here is that Apple's self-driving program, although evidently not dead, might as well be. 
This is because Apple has fallen catastrophically far behind the competition. 
Just for the record, Google started outfitting Lexus SUVs back in 2009 with the first of its own self-driving technologies. Eight years later, Google has become Alphabet and the Google Car has become Waymo — and Waymo has racked up an enormous number of self-driven miles , with precisely zero monetization in sight.
Waymo's concept of a self-driving car is very out-there, very futuristic. Meanwhile, Tesla has been taking a here-and-now approach with its Autopilot semi-self-driving tech: incremental improvement through software and hardware updates. It, too, has been racking up the real-world miles.
A lot of other automakers have been reeling in experimental miles including Ford, General Motors, BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. In fact, almost every major car company has some kind of autonomous plan under construction.
And let's not forget about Uber, which stunned the auto establishment last year when it debuted its fleet of self-driving cars in Pittsburgh .
So let's run through what the self-driving world is up to:
Here's a run-down of Waymo's efforts

Finally, Apple's latest:

The self-driving systems powering these cars use similar hardware, but are ultimately different. 
Some companies are using complex and expensive laser-radar or Lidar systems, some have combined radars and sensors, and some are using cameras. It's not entirely clear yet what Apple's setup consists of, but according to BI's reporting, the training protocol demands some simple maneuvers and scenarios. 
Maybe Apple's systems and/or vehicles are capable of more. Maybe. But the permit applications suggest that Apple has made rudimentary at best progress on autonomy. 
I have a theory about this, which is that Apple was at one time, under Project Titan, working on a fully-fledged car with a radically innovative driver/infotainment interface, an electric powertrain, and some self-driving capability.
Given that I've been saying the Apple Car is vaporware since the get-go, I still think that Project Titan writ large has been abandoned. But Apple has probably decided to keep the self-driving component going and is likely focusing most of its efforts on developing the software for autonomous vehicles. Hence the crude-looking setup in the test vehicle.
The problem is it has to play catch-up. Apple has a gigantic heap of cash to spend on doing just that. But sometimes, money isn't enough when you're running a decade behind.

176 d ago Business Insider :: A bureaucratic mistake has revealed Apple’s secret team of self-driving car experts (AAPL, GOOG, GOOGL)
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Screenshot/YouTube
A secret team of NASA veterans and robotics experts recruited by Apple to lead its self-driving car project has had its cover blown by what appears to be a simple bureaucratic snafu. 
An Apple filing obtained by Business Insider on Friday through a public records request contained the names of six individuals that Apple names as the official "driver/operators" of these driverless vehicles.
The filing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles provided the first public details about Apple's efforts testing self-driving cars, including brief descriptions of the car's "automated system" and a walk-through of the training program for test vehicle operators.
The list of names in the filing made it clear that, over the last several years, Apple has been staffing up with experts holding PhDs in robotics and other related areas to advance its self-driving car efforts.
But that list was apparently not supposed to be public.
A spokesperson for the California DMV told Business Insider that these names were intended to be redacted from the document and asked that they not be published.
Indeed, several of the individuals listed had no known public association with Apple, and no indication of their ties to Apple cited in their professional profiles on LinkedIn.
Growing the ranks
Apple has long sought to maintain a tight level of secrecy around the products under development in its labs and has never publicly acknowledged that it is working on self-driving car. Apple obtained permits to test self-driving cars on California roads earlier this month, joining a crowded field of competitors including Google, Uber and Tesla. 
As the Wall Street Journal notes , the fact that Apple is enlisting these senior-level engineers and PhDs to operate their cars could indicate that the program is still in its early stages. Historically, self-driving car programs like Google spin-out Waymo's only involve senior staff in day-to-day testing until the software is considered stable enough that others can take over. 
Furthermore, Business Insider hears from one industry insider that these PhDs are actually under the command of well-regarded professor Ruslan Salakhutdinov, the company's first-ever Director of Artificial Intelligence, who joined the company in October 2016 .
Uber
While it's generally assumed that Salakhutdinov was hired to do research into making Apple's software and services smarter overall, Business Insider is hearing that he's hiring a team of researchers that will be about 20 engineers when all is said and done, with a mandate to work almost entirely on self-driving car technology.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment on this story at the time of publication.
However, this tracks with Salakhutdinov's few public appearances since taking the role: In late 2016, a presentation given by Apple's AI team listed LIDAR, a crucial self-driving car technology, as an area of focus. And at a recent MIT Technology Review conference, Salakhutdinov's spoke at length about the importance of memory to navigation .
Meet the team
In the filing, Apple names one Shilpa Gulati as one of its "autonomous vehicle driver/operators." On her LinkedIn profile , Gulati, who received her PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas, says she has been employed as a manager of special projects at a "Silicon Valley company" since 2015.
In that role, she writes, "she developed the vision and built an organization of ~30 world class researchers and engineers." It's not clear if Gulati is referring to the same research team now led by Salakhutdinov. In 2009, Gulari worked on a NASA-backed project to design a self-driving underwater vehicle that could potentially explore moons like Jupiter's watery Europa.
NASA
The permit also names former Tesla engineer and Stanford PhD Christopher David Gadda , former NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory robotics engineer Paul Hebert PhD, and  control systems PhD David Rosas , none of whom list an association with Apple on their public-facing online presences. 
Finally, Apple engineers Victor Hwang and Jeremy Ma, both also formerly robotics engineers with NASA JPL, are listed in the filing.
The bigger picture
Apple's work in the automotive world is an open secret in the industry, but the company remains tight-lipped about its progress. 
"It's going to be Christmas Eve for a while," Apple CEO Tim Cook said in February 2016 , indicating that the company wasn't yet ready to divulge its plans.
Apple has what appears to be a mostly separate organization of 1,000 employees working on what it calls "Project Titan" in Sunnyvale, California and other satellite offices. When the project was first revealed in 2015, Apple was planning to build an electric car, with self-driving planned as a later feature.
Apple
Last year, the project hit some snags, though , and Apple was forced to bring on Bob Mansfield, a respected engineer, to cut back the scope of the project and set new goals, according to reporting from Bloomberg. Apple is believed be be primarily working on autonomous software , instead of a full electric car, but the project is still shrouded in secrecy.
Apple is expected to assess the progress it has made on self-driving cars at the end of this year , according to Bloomberg.

Read on Futurism | Share | Tweet

The idea of traveling around town in a self-driving car has captured the world’s imagination. In addition to promising a more relaxed commute, autonomous driving is regarded as a solution to everything from traffic congestion and lack of parking spaces to accident prevention and reduced carbon emissions.
But how realistic is our vision of the car of the future?
Step-By-Step Toward Autonomous Driving
Modern cars already have a lot of assistance systems which anticipate the kinds of features self-driving vehicles will have: dashboard cameras, lane departure warning, blind spot detection, collision prevention, rain sensors, automated parking and real-time routing.
The US Department of Transport has recently announced plans to require cars to stream movement data and monitor other vehicles to avoid crashes. To achieve this, vehicle-to-vehicle communication systems will interact with other driver assistance systems such as automatic braking. They could become mandatory within four years and help reduce the 35,000 deaths a year in road traffic accidents throughout the US.
Google and Uber are among the companies which have sought a high profile for their self-driving vehicles tests, but have hit safety issues in the process. Uber recently found itself at loggerheads with cyclists in California. It emerged that Uber’s autonomous test vehicles could not deal with turning safely across bike lanes, potentially endangering cyclists. Uber spokeswoman Chelsea Kohler told the Guardian in an email that “engineers are continuing to work on the problem”, and said that the company has instructed drivers to take control when approaching right turns on a street with a bike lane.
In spite of the setbacks experienced by these pioneers, most of the world’s biggest car makers – Ford, Nissan, Honda, Daimler, Peugeot, and Hyundai, to name a few – are working on autonomous vehicles that they expect to hit our roads over the next few years. In China, Baidu also has plans for autonomous vehicles.
Tesla is among the most advanced. Tesla cars already in production come with an array of cameras, sensors, and software enabling them to operate in ‘Autopilot’ mode . However, to date, you can only do so in the right conditions – clearly marked lanes, a relatively constant speed and a map of the area you’re traveling through. That said, Tesla has announced plans to have a car self-drive from Los Angeles to New York by the end of 2017 .
Supercomputers on Wheels
Business Insider estimates that by 2020, 10 million self-driving cars will be on the road. However, a lot of development still needs to happen.
Maps are key to the success of automated driving. A report in Popular Mechanics recently quoted an expert saying that while you could base self-driving entirely on visual and sensor cues, this approach would become difficult when rain or snow reduced the visibility of curbs and road markings. Therefore, the magazine concluded, there was industry consensus “that maps will make or break the age of self-driving cars.”
Compared to maps for existing satellite navigation systems, autonomous driving requires a much deeper level of information about the road network. Mapping experts at TomTom are working on highly detailed maps to address this. They will reflect a complete, three-dimensional model of the road, including the road profile, curvature, and terrain.
Self-driving cars will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to combine data from different sources – built-in sensors, cameras, road signs, traffic and weather information – to assess their environment, learn and make decisions on what to do next. To achieve this, large amounts of data will need to be processed on board, in real time, so the car can adapt to the driving situation as needed. Chip makers including NVIDIA and Intel are focusing their research and development on providing the required processing ‘horsepower,’ which has been compared to creating a moving supercomputer.
Regulators are Stepping in
Then there is the design of these cars. When Google started its self-driving initiative – one of the first companies to do so – its proposed ‘pod’ vehicles were not going to have a steering wheel or pedals and were going to have space for just two passengers. Having recently entered into partnership with Fiat Chrysler, Google is now putting its faith into a minivan – equipped with both pedals and steering wheels.
This may also have been, at least in part, a response to new laws on the use of driverless cars. The state of California – where Google is based – has stipulated that self-driving cars must have steering wheels and brake pedals. In Michigan, regulators are working on new laws which would legalize the testing of vehicles without steering wheels and pedals – allowing for no human intervention. It is thought that Michigan wants to gain an advantage on California, which has so far been at the forefront of driverless car development.
The driverless future is within our reach. What’s not clear is to what extent autonomous vehicles will replace traditional ones. Will individuals still own cars – and hence need parking spaces in their neighborhoods and near local amenities? Or will you be able to simply hail or get on a driverless vehicle as you would do with a taxi or bus right now. The latter scenario would make a major difference to cities’ traffic management and town planning. Gauging these developments will be important not only for the companies involved in building the vehicles but also for road authorities and city planners.
