Now We Know Who’s Driving Apple’s Self-Driving Car Efforts

Business Insider reported that, courtesy of a public records request, it got ahold of DMV documents that show who Apple has hired for its self-driving car initiative. The team includes Shilpa Gulati, a former NASA engineer who helped the space agency develop a self-driving underwater vehicle that could be used to investigate other planetary bodies; former Tesla engineer David Gadda; Paul Hebert, a former engineer of robotics at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory; David Rosas, who holds a doctorate in control systems; as well as Apple engineers Victor Hwang and Jeremy Ma, both of whom also used to work on robotics at the JPL. Some of the team members are described as “autonomous vehicle driver/engineers” in the documentation.
