What is claimed to be an updated driverless kit from Apple hit Twitter.
A new video of what would appear to be one of Apple's "Project Titan" self-driving cars was posted to Twitter last night, and it looks much different than it did the last time we saw it. The car appears to be outfitted with standard third-party sensors and hardware, including (count 'em) six Velodyne-made LIDAR sensors, several radar units, and a number of cameras -- all encased in Apple-esque white plastic.
It seems most likely the hardware isn't as interesting as the software under development. It seems some kind of software solution or sensor/software kit for vehicle manufactures is Apple's current focus.
