In August 2015, a group of Apple executives met with representatives from the California Department of Motor Vehicles to discuss the Titan project based on documents received from the Guardian.
Apple’s Titan project, which has been around for a long time, is an electric car project that is under development.
So what did they discuss?
I submitted a request to the California DMW for the Freedom of Information Act to find out what the meeting was about.
Here is the answer I received:
“Since only the Freedom of Information Act applies. At federal agencies, we will process your request in accordance with the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 ff.), Which applies to government agencies.
“There are no identifiable documents that respond to this request.“
Since the answer was not clear to me, I asked her to clarify her answer. And here is the second answer I got:
“The CA Public Records Act does not require an answer to narrative questions. The CA Public Records Act instructs a government agency to only make copies of documents. No documents responded to this request. “
Does this mean that there are no documents that have met unofficially and do not contain any identifiable documents?
However, it is clear that Apple’s interest in cars – and its talks with the DMW – only helped to increase speculation that the company might plan to launch a self-driving car.
