Safer and more mobile communities. Job creation. Reduced emissions. Active industry and government participation. This is what GoMentum Station is built around.
The largest secure testing facility for connected (CV) and autonomous vehicles (AV) in the US, GoMentum Station provides a unique and varied terrain and infrastructure for testing the latest developments in transportation technology. As program manager for this federal AV proving ground, we’re working with Contra Costa Transportation Authority to bring together dozens of private and public-sector entities to test their technologies at the 5,000-acre former naval weapons facility.
This collaborative partnership includes automobile manufacturers; Original Equipment Manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers; communications suppliers; technology companies; researchers and academia; public agencies, and other partners. These entities are converging in research development, testing validation, and commercialization of CV applications and AV technologies to define the next generation of transportation network infrastructure.
The goal? Transform the way people and goods are moved. By testing autonomous trucks, shared automated vehicles for the first and last mile, and personal use connected and autonomous vehicles, we're aiming to create a safer, more efficient system. These technologies will help create jobs and economic opportunities while significantly reducing fuel consumption and emissions—directly benefiting our communities.
