17 Apple Engineers Join Startup Zoox- Apple’s own car

A group of automotive engineers has     left   Apple. Inc       for      self-driving   car   startup    Zoox.  Inc   after the world’s    most   valuable   technology    company    backed   off   plans    to build    its    own vehicle, according to people   familiar  with   the   situation. Yes ,Apple’s  own car is being planned.

These 17 engineers are specialized in designing elements present in both traditional and autonomous system vehicles, such as braking and suspension systems, reported by sources.

Many of them originally joined Apple from Detroit carmakers and suppliers.  A   zoox representative declined  to comment  . The Apple spokesman even declined to share any of its reviews.

Apple   pared   back its automotive ambitions last year after rising   costs   and    headcount   at Project Titan, as the program   is      dubbed.

Hundreds      of    engineers   were  fired,   reassigned  or  left  of their  own volition  and  the project  was given  a deadline  of  late  2017 to prove the feasibility  of its autonomous driving  system  and decide on a final direction, people familiar with its workings  reported.

Chief  Executive   Officer ,Tim  said that Apple is focusing on autonomous  driving   systems.  That technology   could    then  be licensed    to carmakers , or efforts  to make Apple’s  own car may be resurrected at a later date.

The latest  exodus to Zoox   suggests  Apple is less likely  to revive ambitions  to make a car itself . The engineers found themselves  increasingly sidelined to the requirements at Apple,  and were hired by the startup in piecemeal fashion in recent months.

Zoox is developing its own car for a fleet of autonomous vehicles .The Menlo Park , California-based company made a series of big-name hires in April to lead further manufacturing . The startup was valued at more than $1 billion. It has raised more than $250 million .It has also snapped a handful of specialists from Apple in the past 2 years. Let’s wait  to watch Apple soon have its brand name in the cars as well.
