“At Argo, our foundational value is safety,” said Bryan Salesky, Founder and CEO, Argo AI. “Autonomous vehicles have the potential to profoundly and positively impact transportation safety and accessibility in cities. I am grateful for the Argo Safety Advisory Council to share their collective wisdom and expertise to help Argo realize this goal.”

The council would comprise:

· Christopher “Todd” Doss, Senior Managing Director, Cybersecurity at Ankura and former Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

· Dr. Mitchell Garber, Senior Managing Consultant at ESi and former Medical Officer for the National Transportation Safety Board

· David Kelly, Principal and CEO at Storm King Strategies and former Acting Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

· Annette Sandberg, Principal and CEO at TransSafe Consulting and former Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

· Robert Sumwalt, Executive Director of the Center for Aviation and Aerospace Safety at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and former Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board

Argo had previously, in December 2021, conducted a third-party assessment that found its procedures pertaining to test driver selection, training, and oversight met, and in some cases exceeded, industry best practices and standards as defined by the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Consortium’s (AVSC) and SAE International’s J3018 standard for safe on-road testing.

“Argo created the Council proactively, further underscoring the company’s focus and commitment to bringing autonomous products and services to market safely,” the company said in a statement.

It is backed by Ford (NYSE: F) and Volkswagen (ETR: VOW3).
