Argo AI is Bringing Autonomous Vehicle Research in South Carolina Tech & Aviation Center
Argo AI, a global autonomy products and services company, has recently planted roots at South Carolina Technology & Aviation Center. This plan comes with Argo AI’s $2.6 million investment and the plans for 40 new jobs in the Upstate.
Argo AI will have access to SCTAC’s automotive test track system called the International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC). The ITIC will benefit from Argo AI’s rapid growth and impressive holding in their industry. Despite being relatively young, Argo AI has grown significantly in their six years. Two of their largest investors include Volkswagen and Ford.
Argo’s Greenville operations will be dedicated to highway-speed testing as the company advances toward commercial autonomous operations across multiple cities, according to a press release. The company has spent their six years developing, testing, and advancing their autonomy platform. The platform is designed to provide autonomous vehicle technology to support a wide variety of business needs.
