Documents indicate tests self driving car Apple




Apple seems to be busy setting up a test program for a self-propelled vehicle. The tests are expected to start on a closed area near San Francisco. There go some time rumors of a self-propelled Apple’s car, possibly based on the BMW i3.

The Guardian received the documents in hands by relying on the American equivalent of the Public Administration Act in California. The documents show that Apple has shown interest in leasing a large area near San Francisco, named GoMentum Station. This is an old naval base that has been transformed into an area where cars can be tested with “real” traffic situations. The company from Cupertino would have an interest in secret because it could test his car; The complex is in fact guarded by soldiers.

The documents show that Apple has already shown interest in May in use of the site. Further, the details are unclear. The administrators of GoMentum station have reported that Apple has shown interest, but they can not say anything further because of confidentiality has been promised. Apple itself did not respond to the news of the Guardian.
