The transport is a fundamental part of our day and many companies recognize the importance of it, since this is the way in which the employees arrive at the facilities to be able to work, but this day we will talk about a curious fusion between two emblematic companies, the merger of Volkswagen and Apple.
The Titan project developed by Apple, started in early 2015 and focused on the development of an autonomous vehicle for the general public, where the apple company would develop software for autonomous driving and, subsequently, produce a small fleet of autonomous vehicles to transport their staff between offices in Silicon Valley.

These vehicles are planned as vans or 'combis' in which Apple will test their technology, which will not be available to the general public, and for now they will not be able to see them circulating on the streets of California, another aspect that is unknown is if Volkswagen will benefit in some way from this alliance with Apple's autonomous driving technology, that is, that future cars can go on the market to compete with Tesla and other autonomous driving vehicles but thanks to Apple's technology.

According to the source, this project was scheduled to begin operations later this year, but it is likely to be until 2019 when it starts operations between Apple's campuses.
