According to the report from Jalopnik, the document proves that Apple has been working on self-driving tech in its car development program.

The publication also pointed out that the D.M.V. requires companies who test their self-driving systems to track the miles they’ve driven to a minimum on roads of California.

It is vital to be aware that other automakers that are E.V., such as Waymo and Cruise, are too submitting applications to test the autonomous vehicle.

The largest E.V. maker Tesla is owned by the Musk family of Elon Musk. Tesla did not submit this type of paper for its self-driving tech in 2021.

Although Apple Car’s self-driving tech is yet to be officially announced by Apple Car, the iPhone maker, the company has disclosed the number of miles it’s currently driving.

On top of that, It was discovered that the Disengagement document from the California D.M.V. could show the number of vehicles Apple has authorized to try out its autopilot technology.

The range of test vehicles for Cupertino gigantic comprises 37 cars. However, only 35 of them were in the test of 22,000 miles in the year before. Two vehicles were excluded from the test because the application didn’t disclose the reasons in an interview published in Gizmodo.

The report also revealed that Apple claimed they commanded humans to assume control of the self-driving technology in various circumstances.

Drivers who participated in the test conducted by Apple had to supervise the vehicles in 662 different scenarios. The mean of disengagements in the tests is one for every 32 kilometers.
The Cupertino company also revealed other problems their test drivers have had to deal with the technology behind the cars.
In some instances, the auto-driving program did not comply with driving rules. In addition, there were occasions when the system was not obeying the traffic signal.
It’s impressive that Apple has been testing the car’s concept on roads of California without divulging any photos of its research.
