When it shed 200 staff from its Project Titan in January, Apple seemed to be stepping back from the autonomous car business. But the company has now acquired startup Drive.ai in what signifies a new eagerness for the self-drive sector.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Drive.ai was in trouble and planned to fold. Apple had previously taken on several engineers from the company and is now said to have bought it outright.
The Chronicle noted that Drive.ai touted itself as a company developing kits to convert normal cars into autonomous ones.
