Back in October 2018, we began work on the Vehicle to Everything Signal Lab (V2X Signal Lab) at GoMentum Station. This state-of-the-art lab is dedicated to research, training, and testing of Connected Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) hardware and software technologies. Traffic engineers in Contra Costa County and the Bay Area will have access to traffic signal cabinets, multiple traffic signal controllers, video detection, Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC)/5G communication, and other traffic signal related equipment, to test the connectivity and safe crossing of CAVs equipped with On-Board Units (OBUs) and traffic signal controllers equipped with DSRC/5G technology. The V2X Signal Lab is poised to become every traffic engineer’s playground!
We are excited to announce this vision has come to fruition! Check out the video here.
