Apple Has Over 50 Self-Driving Cars On Public Roads Now

The 2015 Lexus RX450h is Apple's vehicle of choice

However, in the meantime it continues to grow its fleet of self-driving test cars - which are now the second largest in the state of California.

Apple still lags far behind General Motor's Cruise division, which leads the pack with 104 vehicles. Apple may have more self-driving cars than Waymo in California, but Waymo likely has more overall. Apple had only three cars on the road in 2017 before expanding to 27 this January and is now up to 55. Sources said that Uber along with Waymo used to have a more autonomous vehicle in California, for instance, both have over 100 self-driving cars in the state before moving part of its fleet to Arizona where additional testing is now taking place. Waymo, for example, used to have over 100 self-driving cars in the state before moving part of its fleet to Arizona and MI, where additional testing is now taking place.

With a new permit and expanded fleet, things are finally starting to look up for Apple after years of hardship.

Apple's quickly growing fleet of cars suggests that it's certainly taking self-driving development seriously. In addition to the 55 self-driving vehicles, Apple has 83 drivers who are permitted to test autonomous vehicles, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Chief Executive Officer at Apple, Tim Cook called self-driving a core technology that we view as very important. "It's probably one of the most hard AI projects actually to work on", Cook said last summer. Waymo applied to the California DMV for a permit to test without human supervision last month, though it's not clear whether it has been accepted.
