Self-driving cars are coming. Ford is betting $1 billion dollars over five years that Argo Ai can make it happen.
CEO Bryan Salesky calls upon his experience leading the software engineering for Tartan Racing, Carnegie Mellon’s winning entry in the DARPA Urban Challenge as he tries to build the future.
He also was on the Google self-driving car team. While at Google, Bryan was director of hardware development, and was responsible for development and manufacture of Google’s portfolio of hardware, which included self-driving sensors, computers and several vehicle development programs.
In this conversation, Bryan and Aaron discuss the pressure associated with raising so much money, the timeline Argo Ai is on to ship their technology, and the network of past DARPA participants.
