Argo AI introduces non-commercial driverless vehicles
AUSTIN – Self-driving startup Argo AI on Tuesday said it had launched driverless vehicles in Miami, Florida and Austin, Texas, but added the vehicles initially were used for in-house testing, with commercial applications following at an unspecified time.
The company allows ride-hail, delivery and logistics companies to integrate its driverless vehicles into their operations.
An Argo AI spokeswoman said ride-hail service Lyft and grocery giant Walmart were running pilot programs integrating the technology.
“Our driverless operations are initially focused on conducting employee rides using our internally-developed ride hailing test app,” the spokeswoman said. “We’ll integrate driverless into commercial operations at the appropriate time.”
