Ex-Apple engineer charged with stealing autonomous-driving tech, fleeing to China
A northern California federal court indicted a former Apple Inc. (AAPL) engineer on charges of stealing autonomous technology, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday. Chinese national Weibao Wang, 35, was charged with leaving Apple in April 2018 with large amounts of proprietary data, and then trying to leave to country with it for China. The data involved "source code used in metrology software which is used in 'smart' automotive manufacturing equipment," the DoJ said.
