Apple Maps cars back on the roads of France (here in Toulouse)

It’s been an old chestnut tree for a few years, Apple has been running its Apple Maps vehicles around the world, in order to improve the mapping software.

A reader, Kaostudiomoreover has spotted in Toulouse a few days ago :

Equipped with cameras and LIDAR, these cars most certainly help in the creation of Flyover and Look Around, this tool integrated into Maps that allows you to take a 360° tour of cities like StreetView. But for the moment, the functionality still does not appear with us!

If you cross them, they are always identical, it is about Subaru Imprezas slightly modified to carry all the paraphernalia and registered in Germany.. The computers (old Mac Pro trash a priori) are located in the trunk, it is also not uncommon to see the staff coming to restart the machines in a parking lot…
