The Guardian reports that Apple’s is moving forward on its much-rumored “Project Titan” vehicle, and the company is said to be searching for a test track in the Bay Area, where it can test the self-driving vehicle.
In May, engineers from Apple’s secretive Special Project group met with officials from GoMentum Station, a 2,100-acre former naval base near San Francisco that is being turned into a high-security testing ground for autonomous vehicles.
In correspondence obtained by the Guardian under a public records act request, Apple engineer Frank Fearon wrote: “We would … like to get an understanding of timing and availability for the space, and how we would need to coordinate around other parties who would be using [it].”
Apple refused to comment when contacted by The Guardian.
The Guardian says the vehicle will be “self-driving,” although previous reports have disagreed whether the car will indeed be autonomous.
it has been previously reported that Apple is working with BMW on the project, under cover of a shell company called SixtyEight Research.
