Former Apple employee 'stole driverless car secrets'



A former Apple employee has been accused of stealing the company's self-driving car secrets and trying to flee to China with them.

 
Xiaolang Zhang worked on Apple's driverless car project but allegedly planned to move to Chinese autonomous vehicle start-up Xiaopeng Motors, the company says in court documents.


He was arrested at San Jose airport, California, on 7 July.


The FBI has charged him with stealing trade secrets.


Xiaopeng Motors says it did not receive any "sensitive information" from Mr Zhang and said it was co-operating with the FBI.
