Argo AI was founded to develop self-driving technology that provides a safer, more affordable, convenient, and accessible way for everyone to get around. To achieve that goal, we partner with the world’s leading automakers to build self-driving vehicles for deployment in ride hailing and goods delivery fleets in large cities.
We respect the fact that the development of self-driving technology is one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics, and artificial intelligence. We approach our goal with a realistic understanding of the extensive amount of engineering and testing required to commercialize this technology and have created a culture of safety inside the organization to do it in the right way.
What does Argo AI do?
Argo AI is developing a production-quality self-driving system (SDS) — which is the software, sensors, and compute that powers self-driving vehicles. Working together with leading automakers, we integrate our SDS into their vehicles from the ground up.
What do you mean by “self-driving vehicles”?
When we say “self-driving vehicles,” we mean vehicles that are intended to operate themselves without a human driver within a given set of parameters, such as geographical boundaries and environmental conditions. This is otherwise known by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) as Level 4 automation.
What is your relationship with Ford and Volkswagen?
Ford and Volkswagen are our initial investors and first customers. Ford and VW independently will integrate Argo AI’s SDS into purpose-built vehicles to support the distinct people and goods movement initiatives of their companies.
Ford and VW’s product development and manufacturing teams bring over 100 years of experience in the automotive industry. With their footprint, our SDS is the first with commercial deployment plans for Europe and the U.S., and has the largest geographic deployment potential of any self-driving technology to date.
Is Argo AI part of Ford and Volkswagen?
Argo AI is an independent self-driving technology platform company. Ford and Volkswagen are major investors and Argo’s first customers.
Will you license or sell your technology to other companies?
Yes, we are actively seeking partnerships with automakers, mobility service providers and key players in the transportation sector. We place an extremely high importance on finding the right fit and remain open to additional investments.
What is something most people wouldn’t know about working at Argo AI?
We’re an open and honest team on a shared mission to improve transportation for all. Our first generation self-driving system began operating on public roads less than one year after the founding of the company.
Where are you currently testing your driverless cars?
We are currently driving on public roads in Washington, DC; Miami, FL; Pittsburgh, PA; Detroit, MI; and Palo Alto, CA.
