Argo AI Begins Driverless Operations in Miami and Austin

Argo AI has commenced driverless operations of its autonomous vehicle technology in Miami and Austin.

Argo AI’s driverless vehicles are now operating alongside other road users in Miami, Florida and Austin, Texas as part of multiple customer-facing pilot programmes.

This step is in line Argo’s goal of commercialising its technology in large cities to maximise scale and support ride-hailing and goods delivery businesses in key locations to increase its market potential.

Miami and Austin are two of the eight global cities in which Argo AI is currently developing its technology
Bryan Salesky, Founder and CEO, Argo AI said:

“Argo is first to go driverless in two major American cities, safely operating amongst heavy traffic, pedestrians and bicyclists in the busiest of neighbourhoods. From day one, we set out to tackle the hardest miles to drive — in multiple cities — because that’s where the density of customer demand is, and where our autonomy platform is developing the intelligence required to scale it into a sustainable business.”

Argo’s technology is currently being piloted in collaboration with Lyft and Walmart. Ride-hailing, delivery and logistics companies can integrate Argo’s autonomous vehicle technology into their operations by using the company’s digital products for real-time trip visibility, daily fleet maintenance support and ride and delivery requests.

In addition to operating in Miami and Austin, Argo is currently developing its technology in Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Palo Alto (US), Munich and Hamburg (Germany). This range will expose the technology to diverse road infrastructure and driving behaviours. For instance, Argo autonomous vehicles operating on Lyft’s ride-hailing network in Miami Beach navigate complex traffic scenarios where pedestrians walk outside of designated areas in 95 percent of total trips, cyclists are encountered in 95 percent of trips, and construction has to be navigated in 67 percent of trips.
