Apparently Jobs mob is scouting for secure locations in the San Francisco Bay area to test it. It has seen evidence that the long rumoured Apple car project is further along than many suspected.
In May, engineers from Apple’s secretive Special Project group met with officials from GoMentum Station, a 2,100-acre former naval base near San Francisco that is being turned into a high-security testing ground for autonomous vehicles.
GoMentum Station is on the old Concord naval weapons station, a disused second world war era facility with 20 miles of paved highways and city streets.
The base is closed to the public and guarded by the military, making it, officials claim, “the largest secure test facility in the world” for the “testing validation and commercialisation of connected vehicle (CV) applications and autonomous vehicles (AV) technologies to define the next generation of transportation network infrastructure.”
Mercedes-Benz and Honda have already carried out experiments with self-driving cars behind its barbed-wire fences.
Based on this, it would appear that Jobs’ Mob Apple has a self-driving car almost ready for the road.
