GoMentum Station and Honda Offer Demonstration of Autonomous Vehicle Technology

 

GoMentum Station, in co-ordination with the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) in California and its partners Honda and the City of Concord, have showcased Honda's automated vehicle testing program at GoMentum Station, the largest secure Connected Vehicle (CV) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) proving grounds in the United States.

GoMentum

GoMentum Station features more than 30 kilometres of paved roadway on a 2,000-ha 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.”

Honda Advanced Technology and Safety Leadership

In pursuit of a collision-free society, Honda is broadly deploying advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which represent a technological bridge to automated driving technology, available across the Honda line-up.

The majority of Honda core models available today in North America, including some of the industry's most popular models such as the Civic, CR-V, Accord and Pilot, can be equipped with Honda Sensing™. In Australia Honda Sensing™ is available in the all-new Civic and just refreshed Accord VTi-L and V6L, while Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist System is available in the HR-V, CR-V.
