Data from the California DMV shows Apple has 67 vehicles and 201 drivers registered for testing autonomous driving features on public roads.
The California DMV requires companies that are testing autonomous driving features to register key details, like the number of drivers and vehicles in use. Apple’s fleet hasn’t changed much since 2021, but the number of drivers has slowly increased.
Apple registered one collision during the first quarter of 2023, but it was a minor one. The vehicle’s tire and rim made contact with a curb, and authorities were not involved.
The data shows Apple’s continued commitment to testing self-driving tools for cars. It is registered alongside other manufacturers like Mercedes, Waymo, Tesla, Nvidia, and Zoox.
