SAN FRANCISCO — The New York Times reports Apple and Volkswagen struck a deal late last year that allows Apple to equip VW vans with self-driving technology to transport its employees between offices.
The agreement is part of an internal Apple program called “Project Titan,” which started in 2015 as an effort to build an electric vehicle. After facing development and management problems, Apple shifted its focus to autonomous technologies that control vehicles.
Apple is using fewer than two dozen of VW’s T6 Transporter vans, which are being customized by Apple. Both companies reportedly declined to comment on the deal. For the full story, click here.
