GoMentum Station, in coordination with the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) and its partners Honda and the City of Concord, showcased Honda’s automated vehicle testing program at GoMentum Station, the largest secure Connected Vehicle (CV) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) proving grounds in the U.S.
GoMentum Station features 20 miles of paved roadway on a 5,000-acre site located in the decommissioned zone of the Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS). The site contains paved, city-like roadway grids, buildings, and other urban infrastructure, providing a realistic environment to accelerate Honda’s development of automated and connected vehicle technologies. There, GoMentum Station and its partners will incubate a new generation of technology that has the potential to revolutionize transportation infrastructure.
“The Contra Costa Transportation Authority and GoMentum Station are committed to supporting innovative research that will influence transportation and enhance safety for all road users,” said Randy Iwasaki, Executive Director, CCTA. “Our partners are developing autonomous and connected vehicle technology that will help accelerate the next generation of transportation infrastructure and make the future of driving safer around the world.”
