Still the company did not disclose the existence of such plans.
Apple is the first publicly acknowledged plans for the development of unmanned vehicle.
According to the newspaper The Financial Times, this happened after the publication of letters addressed to the National Board by traffic safety on highways (NHTSA).
In the letter, signed by one of the top managers of the Corporation Steve Kenner, Apple encourages the regulator to the organization of “fair competition” between newcomers on the market of self-propelled vehicles and traditional producers. Previously, Apple’s never confirmed that is working on the creation of an unmanned vehicle.
Now in the statement that accompanies the letter to the NHTSA, confirms Apple’s work on Autonomous systems that can change the “future of transport”. The Corporation emphasizes the “significant social advantages of automatic vehicles.” Apple also calls the car-drones technology, life-saving, since they will annually prevent millions of accidents and save thousands of people from death.
In addition, according to the FT, hundreds of Apple employees for more than two years worked to develop electric vehicle.
