Apple talks to California DMV about self-driving cars


According to a new report from The Guardian, Apple recently chatted with the California Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) about self-driving cars. The report says that Cupertino’s senior legal counsel Mike Maletic met with the DMV’s self-driving car experts and other officials for an hour last month. Back in August, The Guardian also discovered that Apple was looking into a test site for so-called Project Titan at a former military base near San Francisco. As you might expect, the technology outfit isn’t commenting further and the DMV only spilled that the focus of the meeting was to go over the state’s self-driving vehicle regulations. Details are still scarce on the project as a whole, but we do know that Apple recruited automotive talent to come work for the company a while back. And as The Guardian points out, it’ll have to disclose a lot more if it wants to secure a permit for testing.
