In another sign of the investment in self-driving cars, GM said this week it will add more than 1,100 jobs in California over five years at its Cruise Automation unit to boost its self-driving efforts. Its interest in autonomous vehicle technology, however, has always been clear. It means the Cupertino company received permits in the last couple of weeks or so.

Last month, Swiss publication Inside IT claimed that Apple had hired more than ten post-doctoral students from ETH Zurich to work at its research facility in Switzerland. As The Verge also describes, the question of whether or not Apple is currently testing driverless vehicles remains unknown for now.
