Apple is one of the major technology players actively pursuing self-driving technology for vehicles. While it has not defined the role of such a technology in its own ecosystem – or what it wants to do with it in general – the company has been spotted testing out the tech time and again. This time around, a whole new setup has been spotted, which raises more questions than answers on Apple’s pursuit.
Apple’s autonomous car was recently spotted in Sunnyvale, California, sporting an all-new roof sensor arrangement. A look at the setup reveals a neatly designed cumulation of sensors on the roof of the car. The exact nature and count of these sensors, or any other technology used, is not visible from the photos.

The company had acquired Drive.ai back in June to complement its own software developments towards autonomous cars. The startup uses artificial intelligence to make autonomous systems for cars. Apple acquired its autonomous cars as well as other assets.
