Buzz Around Apple Self-Driving Car

Taiwan Tech News Site DigiTimes reports that Apple is working with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), on self-driving chip technology. Apple and TSMC have reportedly established plans for a factory to produce Apple Car chips in the USA and are currently negotiating with upstream and downstream supplies in the automotive electronics supply chain.

Digitimes also indicates that other car electronics suppliers have started sending samples to Apple for its smart car project.

Apple Insider indicates that Digitimes is usually accurate about supply chain news but has not always accurately predicted Apple’s future plans.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that an Apple self-driving Car could appear around 2023 and 2025.

It is unclear that Apple would be able to effectively compete with Tesla and others that are already active in building cars with various levels of self-driving capability.
