Apple builds the car without a steering wheel, with a completely autonomous driving system


The fact that Apple is working on an electric car is no longer a secret, the company’s plans to collaborate with Hyundai reaching the public space following the misunderstandings between those in charge of the car company. However, even if the partnership with Hyundai did not materialize, Apple still plans to develop a car, which will reach the market before 2025. For this, the company is developing a new proprietary processor, which should allow complete autonomous driving.

The Apple car will not be driven by a driver

Other automotive companies have been working for many years to enable full autonomous driving, but Apple plans to offer this capability from the start. In fact, according to Bloomberg, the Apple car will not include a traditional steering wheel. Inside the Titan car, all the space is dedicated to passengers.

Such a car may seem dedicated to transportation services, but it seems that Apple will want to sell it directly to customers, not just companies. In fact, the car will be compatible with the CCS charging standard, which will allow it to be powered by most charging stations in the world. Of course, the control of the car will be done using a touch interface, not very different from an iPad tablet, with an interface very similar to iOS or iPadOS.

To make a fully autonomous machine, Apple is developing a new processor, which is currently the “most advanced component” of this project. The company wants its autonomous cars to include more security features than the current Tesla and Waymo alternatives, writes Bloomberg. However, both Tesla and Waymo already have several years of experience in the field, as well as many more cars on the streets to collect the data needed to train an AI to control the cars. Apple will only now begin street testing for the autonomous driving system with its on-board processor in the state of California.

What is certain is that Apple is working on a car, and autonomous driving seems to be an important component of this project. But we do not know what the car will look like, who will produce it and whether we will really see it in 2025, as the current plan is.
