COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina governor’s office says a global self-driving vehicle company is establishing a new test facility in the state.
Argo AI’s $2.6 million investment in Greenville County that was announced Wednesday is expected to create 40 new jobs.
The self-driving technology collaborates with automakers to incorporate its platform into vehicles so they can operate autonomous ridesharing and goods delivery services.
A closed-course track will be built in the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center for the development and testing of self-driving vehicle technology.
It will focus on highway-speed testing as the company works toward commercial autonomous operations across multiple cities.
