Three of Apple’s self-driving car executives departed the company in the past few months, according to a report from Bloomberg. The move poses more questions than it provides answers as it remains rather mysterious what Apple has up its sleeve for the automotive industry.

Apple did not immediately return a request for comment on the news, but according to the report, the self-driving car team lost Dave Scott, Jaime Waydo and Benjamin Lyon. Lyon was part of the original car team years ago and the company tasked him with the project’s long-term development. He departed the company for Astra, a firm focused on space satellite launches. Scott’s exit removes him from leading the team’s robotics division, while Waydo will no longer oversee the autonomous car safety and regulations teams. Leading the entire project is Tesla
