Ford Invests for R&D in Canada

Ford Motor Company said Thursday that will invest another CAD500 million ($376.3 million) to expand its Canadian research and development operations.

The investment will establish a new research and engineering center in Ottawa and will add more than 400 software and hardware engineers, more than doubling the automaker’s mobile connectivity engineering team. The new research and engineering center will focus on research and development across infotainment, in-vehicle modems, gateway modules, driver-assist features and autonomous vehicles. The company also plans for additional facilities in Waterloo and Oakville, Ontario, as well as Cary, North Carolina and Sunrise, Florida.
