Apple Makes Deal With Volkswagen To Make Self-Driving Cars


Apple has signed a deal with Volkswagen to make self-driving cars after BMW and Mercedes-Benz reportedly rebuffed the tech giant's requests to hand over control of the data and design of the planned cars, according to The New York Times. Now the company will work to turn some of Volkswagen's T6 Transporter vans into self-driving shuttles for Apple employees. The Times says Apple once planned its own electric self-driving car line, dubbed “Project Titan,” then refocused on making software for self-driving cars.
