The first video footage of Apple’s self-driving car has already
surfaced on the internet, just over a month after the company
first
received permission to drive
on public roads.


Apple’s self-driving car
is actually a Lexus RX450h outfitted
with sensors powered by Apple’s own autonomous driving
software. Video of the car in action reveals Apple’s project is
already highway-worthy as the company races to catch up to its
competition.

Watch it cruise the road with ease:


The
short video
was filmed by an eagle-eyed Apple fan in Palo
Alto. Apple is currently registered to drive three self-driving
cars with six dedicated drivers, all of whom are
way smarter than your average Uber driver
.

Footage
of the Apple car was
published last month
, but this is the first time we’ve
actually seen the car moving down the street. Rather than
developing its own car, Apple’s auto project is reportedly
focused on creating the software platform for autonomous
vehicles.
