Report: Apple leasing former Fiat Chrysler location to test autonomous vehicles

Apple seems to be leasing a facility once owned by Fiat Chrysler to test autonomous vehicles, Jalopnik reports. A source said Apple has been recruiting automotive technicians and test engineers from all over California, and a recent paper published by Apple researchers illustrates how laser-based radar could allow a car to detect 3D objects to navigate (among other applications). Apple declined to comment, but records show there has been recent activity at the site allowing for “all prior and current experimental and proving ground uses” at the site after a real estate development planned for the property fell through in 2015.
