The New York Times reports that the company has. Apples Self Driving Car Is Now a Dinky Self Driving Bus. It shouldnt come as a huge surprise that Apples once ambitious self driving car project is no longer ambitious. The New York Timesreports that the company has relegated research for autonomous vehicles to a software system that will power a self driving shuttle in between its new spaceship campus and its old offices. So much for reinventing the automobile experience. This is not to say that self driving shuttle is lame. Its a futuristic bus that drives itselfApple even has a patent for a bendy bus with tank treads, which is a creative idea. Car Test 2000. But then you hear the name, and your reaction is inevitably, Oh. The self driving shuttle is called PAIL Palo Alto to Infinite Loop. Multinational Business Finance Australian Edition Hotels. While the bus isnt yet running, its hard to imagine Apple employees needing a lift and chirping, Lets go hop in the PAILWhats really disappointing about the Times report, however, are the details of the now abandoned automobile hardware efforts. Weve known since last year that Apple was waffling on its self driving car projectcodenamed Project Titanand shifting its focus away from building a car from the ground up towards building software that could power an autonomous car, a strategy thats also been adopted by Waymo, the new Alphabet company that picked up Googles old self driving project. What we didnt know were many specifics about what Apple thought it could do if it did build a car. Under the leadership of veteran Apple executive Bob Mansfield and with the vision of Apple accent in chief Jony Ive, the i. Car sounds like it was going to be awesome. It wasnt really called the i. Car, but its funny to pretend that it was. Just check out these new details from The Times From the beginning, the employees dedicated to Project Titan looked at a wide range of details. That included motorized doors that opened and closed silently. They also studied ways to redesign a car interior without a steering wheel or gas pedals, and they worked on adding virtual or augmented reality into interior displays. We can only assume that this might have looked something like the Mercedes F0. Minority Report. That self driving car design features cabin wrapped in touchscreens with captains chairs up front that swivel around to create a little mobile living room. Just take out that steering wheel and those pedals, turn the chrome into matte black, and it could almost be an Apple product. But wait theres more. From The Times Apple even looked into reinventing the wheel. A team within Titan investigated the possibility of using spherical wheels round like a globe instead of the traditional, round ones, because spherical wheels could allow the car better lateral movement. Apple thought about making its car roll around on big ballsThats just crazy. Its certainly ambitious But its crazy. Apparently, after some infighting over building a fully autonomous car versus a semi autonomous car, Apple pruned its plans back to a new so called car. OS. This is evidently what will be powering the shuttle, and Apple presumably hopes the software will also find its way into cars designed and built by automotive companies like, well, Mercedes. You cant feel too surprised, but its okay if you feel disappointed. An Apple made mobile augmented reality chamber wouldve been really cool, and maybe well get something close in a decade or two. For now, most of us are still stuck with our gas guzzling death machines.
