Apple is working on a self-driving electric car that might be released in a few years, and according to a recent rumor, the iPhone maker has teamed up with a South Korean startup to develop the autopilot technology for the vehicle.

Apple has worked with a South Korean outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) company to develop its car’s autopilot technology, according to a report by TheElec.

Apple’s South Korean offices are in charge of the project. It began in 2021 and is projected to last till the following year.

Apple is rumored to be following Tesla’s lead. Elon Musk’s electric vehicle company used Samsung memory and outsourced production to JCET STATSChipPAC Korea when designing its autopilot chip.

Apple Car is also planning to deploy LED screens throughout the car to keep other drivers informed about the self-driving system’s activities.

The display would include graphics and video to provide brake information, vehicle speed, and other signals.

The displays for drivers parking the vehicle might display a goodbye message or a welcome message as the user enters the vehicle, according to the study.

The forthcoming Apple Car is expected to have a “C1” chip based on the A12 Bionic CPU, which will include in-cabin AI features like eye-tracking.
