The project is led by Apple's South Korean offices. It was initiated in 2021 and is expected to last till next year.

Apple Car is also expected to use LED screens all over the vehicle to inform other drivers what the self-driving system is doing.
For drivers parking the vehicle, the displays could show a goodbye message, or welcome the user on arrival to the vehicle itself, the report added.
The upcoming Apple Car is expected to use a "C1" chip based on the A12 Bionic processor with in-cabin AI capabilities such as eye-tracking.
