Both talk about each company's safety practices and guiding principles when it comes to self-propelled vehicles, but only one (guessing any) keeps it short and vague. Other companies like Ford, GM & # 39; s Cruise and Nuro also share more details and include charts, car photos and pictures of – wait for it – people.
Some companies relate to websites where security information is clearly held. You won't find anything that is official on an Apple self-drive site unless this January's autonomous system software developer works counts.
It is a voluntary submission to the federal regulator, as Verge explains, but this only accepts our appetite for more information. After hearing about Apple job search, high release rates (how often people need to take over the computer), and some business secrets about Project Titan (known as the Apple Car Project) allegedly stolen from a Chinese autonomous car company, it's hard to understand how Apple are on self-driving cars.
But they seem to push through and at least go through the movements.
Back to the safety report is the most striking lack of photos of any kind from Eple. We know from the recent closing report in California that it is testing modified Lexus RX 450h cars, but we do not see how these vehicles look or what type of equipment they use for sensors and more. Meanwhile, Waymo covers the front of his self-propelled Chrysler Pacifica minivan in front and center.
Apple explains its real way and simulation testing, operating system and daily security meetings. Additionally, we now know that there are two people in all their cars during testing. Mobile phone use is only allowed in parked cars. We also get more details about the training program. But that's pretty much it.
In the introduction, Apple talks about "automated systems" in general and how they see autonomous vehicles that help people. But it never goes so far to share some plans for a commercial car service.
The report says, "We are investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and we are excited about the potential for automated systems in many areas, including transportation."
Tight-lipped Apple shares nothing more than necessary.
