Apple hires engineer from a digital license plate company for Apple Car

Apple recently added digital license plate expert Rónán Ó Braonáin to its growing Project Titan team, reports The site points to Braonáin’s LinkedIn profile, which notes that he served as Director of Engineering at Reviver before becoming a “Secret Agent” working on special projects at Apple.

Reviver is known for making the “world’s first digital license plate”: Slate. The digital license plate, apart from being digital, is able to automatically pay for toll charges and parking fees, keep a maintenance record of your vehicle, monitor its location and more.

Before Apple and Reviver, Rónán worked as the CTO of Vision Fleet for a year where he single-handedly built a software to manage a fleet of EVs and extract data from them. Rónán had also worked at BMW under different roles for nearly 5.5 years.

Previous reports have claimed that Apple will launch the Apple Car in 2019, with the project going full steam ahead after receiving a “committed” label in September this year.
