According to Pittsburgh-based autonomous vehicle technology developer, Argo AI, no sentient beings are required to man its fleet of driverless vehicles, which debuted yesterday on public roads in Miami — and it’s completely safe and legal.
“Elevators used to be a novelty, but today we take them for granted,” Alex Roy, Argo AI’s director of special operations, points out. “The two most common misconceptions about driverless vehicles are that they will never work, or that they will work everywhere overnight. The reality is, driverless vehicles are on the road in several cities right now, and that number will only grow.”
While some companies have begun testing vehicles with safety co-drivers and engineers in the front seat, Argo AI says it’s the first to go fully driverless in the Magic City.
