Ford to create new R&D lab in Silicon Valley

Ford has announced the creation of a Research & Development lab in California’s Silicon Valley.

Engadget article here.

This is reflecting Ford’s heavy investing in infotainment systems over the past couple of years and paves the way for an exciting future, making the car more integrated and relevant in our gadget filled, online lives.

Whilst we at think it’s a great step, we are surprised that with Detroit’s economic situation, the R&D lab could not have been built there and the talent hired from Silicon Valley.

Regardless, it’s a great step forward for Automotive Technology.

  1. I guess Ford wanted to be in the center of the technology hub. Ford is working on cars that are able to communicate with one another so that may be one of the areas they want to develop.
