SCROLL TO EXPLORE

For the engineers of Silicon Valley, mobility is traditionally measured in megabits per second rather than miles per hour. But now a team of advanced researchers, engineers and scientists at Ford is creating new connections between automotive and computer technology in the birthplace of the digital revolution.

Since opening the new Ford Research and Innovation Center Palo Alto in January 2015, the facility has grown to be one of the largest automotive manufacturer research centers in the region. Today, it is home to more than 160 researchers, engineers and scientists, who are driving Ford’s collaboration with the Silicon Valley ecosystem.

With two new buildings and 150,000 square feet of additional work and lab space, Ford Research and Innovation Center Palo Alto is fast becoming a hub of innovation in Silicon Valley and important part the Ford mobility strategy. The expanded Research and Innovation Center team will play a key role in advancing the Ford Mobility initiative by accelerating innovation in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience and big data.
