A few days ago, we reported that Apple had increased the number of test drivers for its self-driving car project. It seems Apple keeps increase the number of test drivers for its self-driving car project, although the total number of vehicles keeps decrease.
The current figures show that Apple currently has the third-largest fleet of autonomous cars in California:
- GM Cruise: 258 Vehicles and 731 Drivers
- Waymo: 145 Vehicles and 322 Drivers (Waymo has added 10 more cars since last week)
- Apple: 66 Vehicles and 143 Drivers
- Tesla: 32 Vehicles and 136 Drivers
Apple’s motivation and interest in the self-driving market are still largely unknown.
Currently, California has issued 63 autonomous vehicle testing permits, with 819 approved vehicles operated by 2,619 approved drivers.
