Apple Has Bigger Autonomous Car Fleet Than Uber, Tesla, Google

The 2015 Lexus RX450h is Apple's vehicle of choice

The number of cars is more than companies like Google, Uber, Waymo.

The new figures show that Apple still has the second-largest autonomous-car test fleet in California, which is arguably the epicenter of self-driving vehicle research.

Behind Apple is Alphabet's Waymo which now has 51 self-driving vehicles and Elon Musk-owned Tesla which has 39 cars. That gives it the second-largest fleet in the United States of America, ahead of Waymo's 51 cars, but still well behind GM Cruise, which boasts 104. Apple may have more self-driving cars than Waymo in California, but Waymo likely has more overall. Uber previously operated a sizable fleet of self-driving cars in California, but its testing program has been suspended in the wake of a fatal crash in Arizona. However, those numbers may be somewhat misleading, since other companies are testing their self-driving fleet in other parts of the U.S.as well.

Many automaker and ride-hailing giants are in the race, however, Tesla which now has 39 self-driving vehicles and Uber which has 29 cars. The company's fleet of autonomous cars that are out on public roads is gradually increasing and according to a new report, Apple has a total of over 50 autonomous cars on public roads as of now.

Said to be codenamed Project Titan, Apple's self-driving programme's fleet is reportedly made up of Lexus RX450h SUVs, each of which is fitted with huge racks of LIDAR and radar sensors as well as cameras. Apple CEO Tim Cook has called self-driving "a core technology that we view as very important".

"We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects". The California DMV has began issuing driverless permits in April of this year.
