Self-driving cars do seem to be the next big thing, and even the folks over at Apple have the intention to put one on the road, too. Documents spotted by The Guardian point to Apple’s upcoming self-driving car effort being known as Project Titan. Apparently, Apple’s engineers did have a pow-wow with officials from GoMentum Station, where the latter happens to be a naval base in the past that is located in the east of San Francisco, where it has been refurbished and transformed into a testing ground for autonomous vehicles.
The Guardian quotes Fearon as mentioning that Apple “would like to get an understanding of timing and availability for the space.” Apple has, of course, remained mum on the situation, and just like the secretive location of the retooled naval base, so too, are officials at GoMentum so difficult to reach, that nobody was able to elicit a comment from them.
We do wonder whether Apple should have called this Project Titan – after all, Blizzard’s Project Titan, an ambitious next generation MMO, was estimated to cost the company $50 million upon cancellation. I know that we live in the 21st century, but there is still some wiggle room left for superstition, right?
