Project Titan is the internal name of one of the most daring projects of the North American Apple. From this will come the first car of the technological giant, for now dubbed in the media as Apple Car.
Mystery continues to surround this product, but a new Bloomberg report tries to dispel some doubts. A report that refutes all beliefs that the Apple Car would be a fully autonomous vehicle.
Apple Car will not feature fully autonomous driving
There are several details alluding to the Apple Car that make up the most recent report by the Bloomberg agency. According to the document, Apple is now more conservative in its plans after having ruled out the development of a fully autonomous vehicle.
This change in strategy was motivated by the Apple Car launch schedule. The objective will be to put the vehicle on the roads in 2026 and for that, autonomous driving will not be part of the initial range of features of this car.
This means that the bold vision of the Apple Car as a vehicle without a steering wheel and without pedals does not reflect the technology’s current plans. Even so, the vehicle will feature autonomous driving on the highway.
Apple wants to develop a vehicle that allows users to do more when they are in the car. To do this, you’ll opt for a Tesla-like strategy that offers autopilot in certain situations, such as on highways.
When the Apple Car approaches a city or town, the user will be warned in advance to take control of the car. But that doesn’t mean autonomous driving isn’t part of a future update to the Apple Car.
Apple Silicon will be one of the hearts of the Apple Car
One of the most important aspects of the Apple Car will be its information processing system. Here, too, Apple will apply its own solution with the inclusion of an Apple Silicon processor.
Details of this component are scarce, but it is said that it will match the combination of four high-end chips developed for Macs. This component is about to go into production.
Regarding the design of this vehicle, Apple has not yet come to a conclusion. However, this detail should be closed next year, with the features defined until 2024 and the first tests to start in 2025.
Finally, it remains to talk about the price of the Apple Car and, as you would expect, it will not be for every wallet. Bloomberg claims this car should be under $100,000, but it certainly won’t be an affordable vehicle.
