Apple’s Project Titan Receives the Green Light
Cernescu Andrei / 2 years ago
The Apple Electric Car Project, otherwise known as Project Titan, has officially received the green light, which means that it will now engage even more Apple employees in an effort to create a fully-functional electric car. The project’s deadline is set for 2019, and even though that seems like plenty of time to build a car, the date is actually quite ambitious. The project’s 600-man team is going to be tripled in order to meet the deadline, but even though there are quite a few autonomous driving experts among the members, sources suggest that the car in question will still require a human driver.
It definitely won’t be easy for Apple to create an electric car, especially since the company itself has no experience in the automotive field. Batteries, sensors and specialized software will probably need to be designed from scratch, but since funding is not likely to represent an issue, I think that Apple might actually be able to create a decent product. By 2019, many other major players in the automotive industry will be rolling out their own long-range electric vehicles, including Tesla’s Model 3 sedan that’s set to be revealed in spring. Project Titan remained in research for a year before it received the green light for production.
