The robot taxi is on the way

The robot taxi is on the way, Fortune notes: "Self-driving car firm Argo AI and investor Ford are adding 1,000 self-driving cars to Lyft's ride-hailing network over the next five years, TechCrunch reports. The cars are currently being tested in Miami, and will slowly be distributed to Austin, and then other unnamed cities. Argo AI also tests in Washington D.C., Palo Alto, Calif., Pittsburgh, and Detroit".

Autonomous vehicle technology startup Argo AI and its backer and customer Ford plan to launch at least1,000 self-driving vehicles on Lyft’s ride-hailing network in a number of cities over the next five years, starting with Miami and Austin.

The first Ford self-driving vehicles, which are equipped with Argo’s autonomous vehicle technology, will become available on Lyft’s app in Miami later this year. Ford and Argo have had a presence in Miami for years now and have an active fleet of test vehicles.
