Apple Car in the Wild

Apple is operating more than 60 vehicles, therefore it’s not much of a surprise to see them on the roads. This one passed by on East Homestead Road in Cupertino right at the new Apple Park (the UFO).

I edited the video to slow it down and have a better look at the roof mounts. Interesting to see is that Apple reduced its number of Lidars, which seem to be nine. In the past Apple had almost two dozens of Lidars on the roof. Also to notice is that in contrast to other companies testing autonomous vehicles, no sensors seem to be mounted to the front and read bumper.
