Apple is Working on Self-Driving Shuttle Service Called PAIL

Five people familiar with Apple's auto project, code-named "Titan", discussed with The New York Times the missteps that led the tech giant to move - at least for now - from creating a self-driving Apple vehicle to creating technology for a auto that someone else builds.

Now according to a recent report, Apple is developing a self driving shuttle for Apple Campuses. After longtime Apple hardware executive Bob Mansfield took over the Titan project previous year, he shifted its focus from building a auto to the technology behind it, the Times said.

The shuttle, nicknamed PAIL - that's short for Palo Alto to Infinite Loop - will be based on a commercial vehicle from an existing auto company, outfitted with Apple's own self-driving technology. Those plans have been scaled back under the direction of Bob Mansfield.

The pinnacle of Apple's new plan will be a self-driving shuttle service, which will take Apple employees between old Apple buildings and its fancy new UFO headquarters. To that end, Apple has recently obtained a self-driving auto testing permit from California, with CEO Tim Cook publicly stating that the company is working on autonomous systems.
