Despite the difficulties (common to the entire autonomous driving sector to tell the truth)the Apple Car project goes ahead and, according to the latest rumors, the Cupertino house would have reached an advanced stage of development. The project becomes more and more clear. According to a new report, the Apple Car will use some sensors that Apple has already experimented with iPhone and iPad Pro last generation. Here are the latest details on the matter.
Apple Car will use LiDAR sensors already used in iPhone and iPad
For his Apple Caraccording to a new reportthe Cupertino house will use the LiDAR sensors from China’s Wenmaosupplier of the same sensors also for iPhone and iPad Pro. These sensors are essential for the rcreation of the autonomous driving system which will characterize the project and which needs a lot of data to detect the position on the road and the position of the other elements of the road (pedestrians, cars, obstacles).
The latest rumors about the Apple Car project confirm that thecompany would have reduced the expectations of the project, significantly lowering the price target, compared to the initial $120,000, and reducing the ambitions of the autonomous driving system. Most likely, therefore, the car will include an assisted driving system with the possibility of operating autonomously in some circumstances.
The debut is expected for 2026.
