Apple’s Most Ambitious Machine Learning Project
When the car is serviced regularly, it runs more smoothly and efficiently. There is less risk for the car to break down and incur unexpected and expensive repairs. It is very easy to have the car serviced by the mechanic on the Gold Coast who knows exactly what to do with the vehicle. Avoiding car service is false economy because wear and tear on the vehicle can result to major repair or replacement.
Apple has always kept new products and services under wraps until it is launched to the market. However, Apple’s interest in self-driving car technology was never a secret. On the contrary, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed a year and a half ago the company’s interest in developing autonomous systems for cars. Tim Cook revealed that the core technology of autonomous cars is their most difficult AI project, to date.
Meanwhile, it seems that Tim Cook’s use of the word difficult is somewhat an understatement. According to reports from “The Last Driver License Holder” the efforts of Apple towards self-driving cars has resulted into more disengagement incidents compared to other companies that are now testing the technology in the state of California. Disengagement means that the driver of an autonomous car has to reassume control of the wheel.
California Department of Motor Vehicles revealed that Apple’s self-driving cars has to be disengaged every 1.1 miles while that of Waymo, Google’s autonomous car effortdisengagement was experienced every 11,154 miles. At this point, it can be difficult to imagine Apple considering an official jump towards automotive space anytime soon.
However, it is worth mentioning that data has been gathered from self-reporting and some of it may be skewed or incomplete. The data gathered does not take into account the driving environment where the disengagements occurred. It is possible that Apple is pushing its cars to the limit on the public highways and not on the quiet roads.
Whenever there is a need to install or fix brakes for safety or change tow bars and tyres, you have the option of mechanic on the Gold Coast that guarantees all work performed for your peace of mind. However, do not wait until the car breaks down before bringing it to the mechanic.
