The Argo Autonomy Platform The Argo Autonomy Platform includes the software, hardware, HD maps, and backend support needed to power full-service self-driving operations at scale. Today, our autonomous technology is integrated into two vehicles with custom-built hardware and redundant safety systems. Ford Escape Hybrid This hybrid-electric autonomous vehicle is designed for commercial services in U.S. cities. Learn More Volkswagen ID. Buzz AD This all-electric autonomous van is designed for commercial services in European cities. Learn More How It Works .01 Map Highly-detailed 3D maps offer safety redundancy and street-level knowledge, like speed limits and the locations of traffic signs. .02 Sense A suite of lidar, radar, and camera sensors provide a detailed view of the vehicle’s surroundings more than 400 meters in all directions. .03 Plan Using sensor data, the Argo Self-Driving System predicts and plans the vehicle’s actions, factoring in the paths of other road users. .04 Act Argo technology directs the engine, braking, and steering so that the vehicle moves safely and naturally, like an experienced local driver. What the Argo Autonomy Platform can see How We Test From the lab to simulated environments, closed courses, and public roads, we continuously test our technology to perform safely and reliably in diverse conditions. View our Safety Report Argo Lidar Argo Lidar is our proprietary laser sensor, built specifically for the demands of safe self-driving. More than 400 meter sensing range for safe driving at higher speeds High-resolution imagery for complex city environments Detection of low-reflectivity objects at distance 360-degree rotation for full coverage Argo Watch Commercial operations require technology that extends far beyond the autonomous vehicle itself. Argo Watch, our suite of cloud services, allows businesses to manage key aspects of autonomous vehicle operations – including real-time map updates and software diagnostics.
