We recently learned that “Project Titan”, the apple car project, has changed boss and will now be Apple’s director of artificial intelligence and machine learning, responsible for implementing it.
The Apple Car project went through different phases, at first it was thought that Apple wanted to launch its own car, but now resulted in a project focused on the autonomous car and all the technology behind it. Apple doesn’t want to produce its own car, it wants to offer its autonomous driving technology to other manufacturers, at least for now.
And it seems that in order for the project to move forward, Apple needs special processors designed by themselves. Does this mean anything to you? It is the same is happening with the iPhone, with the iPad, with the Apple Watch or, more recently, with the Macs.
Apple wants a special processor like Tesla’s
Digitimes today released a somewhat incomplete report on Apple’s so-called “Project Titan”. The report says that Apple works with TSMC to make chips for self-driving cars
TSMC appears to have an exclusive factory and has already developed technology for the notional “Apple car”. According to the report “The model created by Apple for the Apple car is similar to that of Tesla”
It’s not a lot of information, but it seems clear that this project is moving forward. Although having changed a lot in recent years, Apple continues to invest heavily in its “ Apple car ” and this technology could be ready in the next few years. We will see how Apple decides to market it, since it has never liked to sell its technology to others.
