Apple in talks with California DMV’S officials about self-driving car

Apple Car will soon be a reality.

A new report from “The Guardian” claims that Apple met with several officials at California's Department of Motor Vehicles a month ago to talk about self-driving cars.

The DMV tells the paper that the Apple meeting was to review the DMV's autonomous vehicle regulations. The exact topics of discussion between the two are still not known.

The attendees of the meeting incorporated a member from Apple's senior legal team.

The need to involve the legal team is intelligent, considering how profoundly involved lawmaking will be later on for self-driving vehicles.

In addition to the member of legal team, there were a bunch of the DMV's self-driving advocates and its chief counsel.

The report declares that the meeting's presence recommends that its independent vehicle, whatever it may be, is verging on preparing for a public viewing.

However there is no reason to trust it is true, because the development of such a vehicle is a multi-year cycle, even if the industry’s maestros are involved.

Despite the speculations that Apple has been looking for manufacturing partners, there isn't any confirmation that they have discovered one.

Also, on the off chance that Apple has chosen to make a vehicle all alone, they have yet to get the industrial factories or the supply chain relationships to get that going.

It bodes well that Apple would need to meet early and regularly with the regulatory agencies that will be dictating how its car operates both in testing and in production.

Any testing publicly will include testing on open streets and while being heavily camouflaged, a time-honored tradition, even the disguised vehicle will give many clues to what the final product may look like.
