Attached Image Apple has axed more than 200 employees from in its autonomous vehicle group. Dubbed Project Titan, not much is known about what is being exactly developed.

Acknowledging the job cuts, an Apple spokesperson said, “We have an incredibly talented team working on autonomous systems and associated technologies at Apple. As the team focuses their work on several key areas for 2019, some groups are being moved to projects in other parts of the company, where they will support machine learning and other initiatives, across all of Apple.”

“We continue to believe there is a huge opportunity with autonomous systems, that Apple has unique capabilities to contribute, and that this is the most ambitious machine learning project ever.”

CNBC added on this topic by claiming some Project Titan employees are still working for Apple but transferred to other areas of the company as part of the restructuring.

Apple is believed to have shifted its efforts developing a bespoke electric vehicle to instead just working on autonomous software. It remains to be seen if its autonomous Lexus prototypes will continue to run around in California.
