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.

How It Works

.01 Map

Roadway Map Illustration

Highly-detailed 3D maps offer safety redundancy and street-level knowledge, like speed limits and the locations of traffic signs.

.02 Sense

Argo AI Sensing Illustration

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

Argo AI Act Illustration

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 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.
