Not only # Apple Car: the first patent filed by the Cupertino company seems destined to create a #truck. The document, published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and issued on 9 August, speaks of "a steering device for an articulated vehicle that improves reliability while driving".
Apple's articulated lorry stands out because it allows better control, in the phase of steering, of the two parts that compose it, especially in adverse conditions, for example in case of snow or ice.
The inventors of the Apple patent are of Bae Systems, a Swedish company that deals with military vehicles. But, in the absence of confirmation from Apple, Patentlyapple.com considers that it is a bit too early to speculate: "Considering that the purpose of the Project Titan is to be on an eye-catching electric vehicle, capable of competing with Tesla Motors, a patent on a clumsy articulated vehicle it is clearly not the image that Apple would like to give back to the public ”.
What does Apple really have in mind? Maybe an articulated lorry that drives itself?
