https://dk2dyle8k4h9a.cloudfront.net/Apple Car Rumours: The Giant Temporarily Scaled Back The Project Titan

It’s indeed a major setback for all the Apple lovers! The dreamy “Apple Car” may never come to a real shape if sources are to be believed. Apple has all but the giant decided to drop its plan to design electric cars and give shape to the “Project Titan”. It was one of its kinds of projects for the giant but things didn’t work quite well. And, the leaders decided to abandon the plan.

Instead of giving a real shape to the “Project Titan”, Apple is now channelizing its energy towards developing self-driving systems, according to the sources. The giant is very much focused on concreting the plans for a self-driving campus shuttle codenamed PAIL or “Palo Alto to Infinite Loop”. Apple’s main campus is located in Infinite Loop and Palo Alto is a nearby city.

Insights on PAIL

Apple’s tech geeks are experimenting with some of the latest technologies including “Augmented Reality” dashboard to innovative “CarOS” operating system in order to replace car’s steering with a spinning wheel that would allow a wider range of movement, as per The Times reported. Apple is also looking for a way to include a lidar array that would give information about the environment around the object.

However, Apple has not cleared its plan on the direction it would be going to create the self-driving car. Apple design guru Jony Ive is concerned on developing a fully functional self-driving car same as Google’s spinoff Waymo. But, Apple’s original project head Steve Zadesky wanted it to be only semi-autonomous that could work like Tesla’s vehicles. Now, under the expert guidance of Bob Mansfield, Apple is redirecting all its energy to develop the self-driving cars as soon as possible.

Apple’s endeavor of developing self-driving cars is sure to add more fuel to the fire. With Apple’s onset in the self-driving car projects, the already ignited market is sure to see more competition in the days to come. This could bring a major revolution to the self-driving car industry.
