Apple appears to be leasing a former Fiat Chrysler-owned proving grounds in Arizona to test autonomous vehicles, according to a source familiar with the matter. It’s the latest sign that one of the largest technology companies in the world isn’t as done with autonomous vehicles as expected, following the crash of its once-vaunted Project Titan last year.
Over the last several months, Apple has been recruiting automotive test engineers and technicians from other proving grounds in the state, according to the source. The company signaled its intention is to test autonomous tech, the source said, which tracks with Apple’s revamped approach to self-driving cars.
