So says Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan with news from a Reuters article.
According to an anonymous source close to the project, Apple’s car project is all about developing a competitor to other high-profile self-driving car projects, including Google’s. And apparently, the project is less about the car itself than the software controlling it. “It’s a software game. It’s all about autonomous driving,” says the source in Reuters’ story, hinting that Apple is more interested in owning the operating system and interface that the self-driving cars of the future will run than the car itself.
So, is Apple building a car? Or, Microsoft Windows style, developing software that makes a driverless car drive?
