Apple isn’t out of the self-driving car game because of its recent layoffs — far from it, if you believe reports. Reuters sources claim that Apple has talked with “at least” four possible suppliers as it looks for a “revolutionary” lidar sensor design. Where existing autonomous vehicles tend to have bulky, expensive sensor packs that use mechanical parts to scan the road, Apple wants lidar that could fit into the aesthetics of a car while scanning “hundreds of meters” ahead and costing hundreds of dollars, not tens of thousands.
