Apple has yet to openly discuss its self-driving vehicle research, but it’s a poorly kept industry secret. Around 5,000 employees — including a portion of those previously employed by, an autonomous car startup Apple acquired last year — are said to be involved with code-name Project Titan, a joint effort with Volkswagen to develop autonomous cars and shuttle vans. And a preprint paper published on this week appears to pull back the curtains further: In it, Apple research scientist Yichuan Charlie Tang and team detail an AI approach that creates progressively more diverse environments for driving scenarios involving merging vehicles.
