Apple's ambitions to develop a driverless auto appear to be simmering, while other companies' autonomous tech endeavors are continuing or heating up. This service, named PAIL, which stands for Palo Alto to Infinite Loop, will transport employees between the many Apple offices in Silicon Valley. Infinite Loop is the street on which Apple's main campus is located and Palo Alto is a city nearby. Apple was first reported to be working on the Project Titan in full throttle back in 2014 and 2015. The company doesn't seem to have ambitions to offer their own Applevehicle in the immediate future. Back in 2014, Apple embarked on the Titan project that was graced by experienced Apple staff, new software engineers and engineers with years of experience in vehicle making. Every facet of a device or technology spends in years in research and testing before they are merged to form a fully contained and fully owned Apple product. It's a move that makes sense: leave the car-making to the carmakers, and instead focus on the technology side of autonomousvehicles. The Times notes there were some cool ideas in the works, like globe-shaped wheels, adding augmented reality into interior displays, and the reinvention of cars to not have steering wheels or gas pedals.
Beyond the shuttle, Apple is still trying to reinvent the self-driving wheel - literally. One debate raged as to whether the operating system for the vehicle, CarOS, would be programmed using Apple's Swift language or C++. It did not name the vehicle makers or if the software is self-driving. "Project Titan", as the endeavor was known internally, saw Apple engineers looking at cleaner, more pleasing ways to tackle a number of automotive parts that might normally go unaddressed.
