Apple appears to have parked self-driving car project

Apple appears to have shelved its plans to develop a self-driving car. The US technology company is reported to have reduced the scale of its 1,000-strong Project Titan team, with hundreds of staff either being made redundant or reassigned.

Rather then develop its own vehicle, Apple is believed to be looking at partnering with established car-makers. 

A report by Bloomberg stated that Project Titan, which is based in Sunnyvale, California, has been affected by changes in leadership and supply chain issues. Apple did not comment. 

Several other technology firms are working on automated vehicles. Google has been developing self-driving cars since 2009 and Uber has announced a an autonomous car programme.

This week saw the technologist Elon Musk has unveiled new video footage of a self-driving journey undertaken by one of his electric Tesla cars.
