Argo Self-Driving System
We’re building the eyes, ears, and brain of an autonomous vehicle with our core product, the Argo Self-Driving System. Today, our system is integrated into two vehicles.
Meet the Ford Escape self-driving test vehicle
A hybrid-electric vehicle with custom-built hardware and redundant safety systems, specifically designed for commercial autonomous services in U.S. cities.
Meet the Volkswagen ID. Buzz AD (Autonomous Driving) test vehicle
An all-electric autonomous van that will enable commercial ride pooling services throughout Europe.
How It Works
Highly-detailed 3D maps offer safety redundancy and street-level knowledge, like speed limits and the locations of traffic signs.
A suite of lidar, radar, and camera sensors provide a detailed view of the vehicle’s surroundings more than 400 meters in all directions.
Using sensor data, the Argo Self-Driving System predicts and plans the vehicle’s actions, factoring in the paths of other road users.
Argo technology directs the engine, braking, and steering so that the vehicle moves safely and naturally, like an experienced local driver.
What the self-driving system can see
Commercial operations require technology that extends far beyond the autonomous vehicle itself. Our flexible cloud infrastructure includes dispatch and fleet management systems that can connect to existing operations with speed and efficiency – for deploying ride-hail and delivery services at scale.
