Apple & VW Team Up On Self-Driving Vans

Apple & VW Team Up On Self-Driving Vans

In early 2015, rumor mills claimed Apple was working on a robot car. These rumors heated up again later that year as the company announced an autonomous vehicle testing division and analysts expected an Apple vehicle to hit the roads in 2019. Since then, it’s been relatively quiet despite the fact that the company has 55 licensed autonomous vehicles on California streets. Now, we’re hearing news that Apple has partnered with VW to created autonomous shuttles for their corporate campus. While this is a long way from a consumer product, it does add substance to 3 years worth of rumors.
