  • Ex-Tesla Employee Confesses Uploading 300,000 Autopilot Source Code Files To iCloud

Tesla filed a lawsuit against its former employee in March, who was allegedly stealing source codes of Tesla's Autopilot technology.

Now, it should be said that neither Tesla nor Apple has chose to go after Xpeng itself, instead focusing their efforts on the ex-employees that admitted to having made off with intellectual property. Cao's legal team claims he "made extensive efforts to delete and/or remove any such Tesla files prior to his separation from Tesla".

The filing suggests that Cao stole important documents past year, deleted around 120,000 files in December, deleted proof of the theft (disconnected his iCloud and deleted browser history) and left Tesla on January 3.

Apart from stealing trade secrets from the Elon Musk-owned EV company, Cao has been accused of sharing information with Chinese autonomous car-maker Xiaopeng Motors, which is backed by Alibaba.

Father Ted star Brendan Grace dies aged 68
He has had a number of health issues in recent years and suffered a stroke and complications from diabetes. Grace received the new that he had lung cancer while receiving hospital treatment for pneumonia.

It was alleged that Guangzhi Cao transferred zip files of the Autopilot source code to his iCloud a year ago, for which Cao was sued by Tesla. The chairman He Xiaopeng called the lawsuits "questionable", according to Bloomberg, and said there was a natural "flow of talent" between his company and Tesla. Currently, he works as "Head of Perception" at the Chinese vehicle startup.

While Tesla accuses Cao of poaching a Tesla employee to his new company, Cao denies the allegations.

Cao received an offer to work for Xiaopeng Motors in November 2018, and Tesla alleges that "Long before he left, Cao began uploading complete copies of Tesla's Autopilot-related source code to his personal iCloud account - more than 300,000 files and directories, in violation of Tesla's policies and its agreements with Cao".

Tesla, Cao, and Xiaopeng haven't provided any comments on the same.
