In this photo taken Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015, technical director Dragos Maciuca poses in the lobby of the Ford Motor Company Research and Innovation Center in Palo Alto, Calif. Maciuca left Apple this year to become the technical director of Ford’s Silicon Valley lab. Maciuca, an engineer who worked for BMW and Nissan in the late 1990s, says auto companies got little respect in Silicon Valley until a few years ago. But that changed after automakers moved in and started helping tech firms understand how to incorporate their apps and software into cars. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
