Ford Motor will spend $1 billion to take over a robotics startup to acquire more of the expertise needed to reach its ambitious goal of having a fully driverless vehicle on the road by 2021.

Puskar, File) SAN FRANCISCO — Ford Motor is spending $1 billion to take over a budding robotics startup to acquire more expertise needed to reach its ambitious goal of having a fully driverless vehicle on the road by 2021.
The big bet announced Friday comes just a few months after the Pittsburgh startup, Argo AI, was created by two alumni of Carnegie Mellon University's robotics program, Bryan Salesky and Peter Rander.
The alliance between Argo and Ford is the latest to combine the spunk and dexterity of a technologically savvy startup with the financial muscle and manufacturing knowhow of a major automaker in the race to develop autonomous vehicles. Last year rival General Motors paid $581 million to buy Cruise Automation Men's Nike Odyssey React Gun Smoke Black Grey Australia , a 40-person software company that is testing vehicles in San Francisco.
The Argo deal marks the next step in Ford's journey toward building a vehicle without a steering wheel or brake pedal by 2021 — a vision that CEO Mark Fields laid out last summer.
The big-ticket deal for the newly-minted company clearly was aimed at getting Salesky and Rande. Salesky formerly worked on self-driving cars at a high-profile project within Google — now known as Waymo — and Rander did the same kind of engineering at ride-hailing service Uber before the two men teamed to launch Argo late last year.
"When talent like that comes up, you don't ignore that ability," said Raj Nair, who doubles as Ford's chief technical officer and product development head.
The two will develop the core technology of Ford's autonomous vehicle — the "virtual driver" system, which Nair described as the car's "brains, eyes Men's Nike Odyssey React Black White Australia , ears and senses."
The decision to turn to Argo for help is a tacit acknowledgement that Ford needed more talent to deliver on Fields' 2021 promise, said one expert familiar with Salesky and Rande.
"This is likely a realization that Ford is behind relative to companies like GM, Audi, Volvo, Waymo and Uber, and is trying to catch up Women's Nike Odyssey React Habanero Red Australia ," said Raj Rajkumar, a Carnegie Mellon computer engineering professor who leads the school's autonomous vehicle research.
Salesky said Argo expects to have 200 workers by the end of the year. Argo employees will be given stock in the subsidiary as part of their compensation packages so they will be enriched if Argo's technology becomes a hot commodity.
The equity should set Argo apart from other companies in recruiting scarce tech workers. "There's a war for talent out there," Fields said.
By joining with Ford, Argo gets strong capital backing and expertise on other components needed to run autonomous cars, as well as product development and manufacturing knowledge, Salesky said. In return for its funding Women's Nike Odyssey React Casual Arctic Pink Australia , Argo will design its driverless system exclusively for Ford and then have a chance to license the technology to other automakers in the future.
Competitors such as NVIDIA have developed artificial intelligence that learns about different situations as it's tested on roads, something that is almost essential for an autonomous car to function in heavy traffic on city streets.
Ford isn't just racing General Motors and other automakers to gain robotics experience. Uber bought autonomous trucking startup Otto for an estimated $680 million last summer primarily to get Otto's engineers on its team working on driverless vehicles. Otto co-founder Anthony Levandowski, another former Google engineer, is now overseeing Uber's testing of driverless cars in Pittsburgh and Arizona.
MADRID, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona have to pick themselves up and dust themselves down after the disappointment of their defeat to Malaga on Saturday and prepare for their most important game of the season when they face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Last season saw Barca knock the English Champions out of the tournament, but there were factors in the tie which went in Barca's favor Women's Nike Odyssey React Gray Black Australia , such as the fact that Manchester City striker, Kun Aguero was struggling for match fitness after injury and a red card shown to Martin Demichelis before halftime in the first leg, both of which left City with a mountain to climb.
This time, around, although Toure Yaya is suspended for the first leg against his former club, Aguero is 100 percent fit Nike Odyssey React Desert Sand Sail Women's Pink Australia , while the club have recent signing William Bony ready to make an impact. The English outfit are also brimming with confidence after blowing Newcastle United away 5-0 on Saturday as Edin Dzeko showed coach Manuel Pellegrini he has plenty of options in attack.
Weighted up against this, Barcelona produced one of their most disappointing performances of the campaign on Saturday, just when most were expecting them to step up their challenge for the BBVA Primera Liga title.
A win would have momentarily lifted Barca above Real Madrid in the table, but now they have fallen to four points behind and need a favor from other sides if they are to win the league.
Coach Luis Enrique made several changes to his team on Saturday and will make more on Tuesday as Javier Mascherano replaces Jeremy Mathieu in central defense, while Ivan Rakitic comes into central midfield.
The club have taken all of their available player to England, but are likely to line up with Ter Stegen in goal Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2 Australia , a defense made up of Dani Alves, Gerard Pique, Mascherano and Jordi Albar, while Sergio Busquets, Rak.
