Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, at the Concord Naval Weapons Station, GoMentum Station contains 20-miles of paved, city-like roadway grids, buildings, and other urban infrastructure. Honda researchers are using the facility to test automated driving technologies using modified versions of Acura’s flagship RLX sedan. New prototype sensors and cameras added to the vehicle will work hand-in hand with the extensive array of forward, reverse, and corner sensors that enable a suite of AcuraWatch safety and driver assistive technologies on the production RLX.
Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) is continuing to invest in GoMentum Station in Concord, CA: the largest secure and most realistic facility for testing vehicle-to-vehicle communications and other transportation technology in the United States. The video below – released by Honda yesterday – showcases the technology testing that’s going on right here in Contra Costa!
What makes GoMentum Station so unique is the combination of its large size (5,000 acres) and real-world layout (20 miles of urban grids & curving country roads). It is an ideal environment for testing vehicle-to-vehicle communications and transportation technology on a large scale.
CCTA’s vision for GoMentum Station is centered on creating jobs, developing a world-class test facility with active industry and government participation, and innovating new technologies that will make driving safer and smoother for all.
