Argo AI, a global company that develops self-driving vehicle technology, is opening a $2.6 million test center in Greenville County, which is expected to generate 40 new jobs in the county.
Argo will develop and test its self-driving vehicle technology on a closed-course track at the SC Technology and Aviation Center. It will be used for high-speed testing as the company moves closer to commercial autonomous operations in numerous cities.
“Automation is the future in the automotive industry, and companies like Argo AI are trailblazers in their field,” said Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III. “We are excited to welcome a cutting-edge company like Argo AI to South Carolina, and we know they’ll do great things here and beyond.”
Along with sites in western Pennsylvania and Munich, Germany, the Greenville County track will be Argo’s third closed-course facility.
Argo, which was founded in 2016, partners with top automakers to integrate its Autonomy Platform into vehicles. It provides autonomous ridesharing and commercial delivery services to communities all around the world.
The Greenville operations are anticipated to begin later this year. Those interested in working at Argo, click here.
