Apple made an internal agreement in 2015 called ‘Project Titan’, which was an ambitious effort to construct an electric vehicle. The Apple Project Titan had faced major issues as some executives who were working on the project left in between. Later, Apple had to face some development and management problems. Apple thus shifted to autonomous technologies that can control vehicles. Apple has decided to incorporate a deal with Volkswagen to further extend employee benefits.
According to a report from a source familiar with the issue, Apple will be using Volkswagen self-driving vans to transport employees between offices. Apple and Volkswagen officials, on the other hand, have not come forward to comment on this matter.
Apple technologies are run by a staff of hundreds of hardware and software engineers, designers, and car battery experts. This team of experts is capable enough to take on Tesla Inc. and Detroit.
Apple, for now, is using around two dozen VW T6 Transporter Vans. According to information from an internal source, these vans are customized by Apple. With its self-driving technology, Apple is testing a number of Lexus SUVs on public roads in California. The company is also applying technology to extend transport staff between office buildings at its Cupertino, California headquarters.
