Hyundai in 'early talks' with Apple about self-driving electric cars

Hyundai are in "early talks" with Apple about self-driving electric cars.

The motor company has confirmed it is in "early stage" discussions with the tech giant about autonomous vehicles but insists "nothing has been decided" just yet.

A regulatory filing further added that Hyundai was "getting requests for cooperation on joint development of autonomous electric vehicles from various companies".

It comes after Apple's Tim Cook confirmed the company are working on "autonomous systems".

The CEO has revealed the multinational technology company will be working on systems that work autonomously but refused to be drawn on exactly what exactly that would entail.

In an interview with Bloomberg Television, he said: "What we're focusing on, what we've talked about focusing on publicly, we're focusing on autonomous systems. And clearly one purpose of autonomous systems is self-driving cars, there are others. And we sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects. It's probably one of the most difficult AI projects, actually, to work on.

"And so autonomy is something that's incredibly exciting for us, and ... we'll see where it takes us. We're not really saying from a product point of view what we will do, but we are being straightforward that it's a core technology that we view is very important."
