AMG is the program manager for GoMentum Station, the nation’s largest secure testing facility for connected and autonomous vehicles. GoMentum Station provides a unique and varied terrain and infrastructure for testing the latest developments in transportation technology. So far, more than 25 private and public-sector entities – from auto makers to technology and communications firms – are invested in testing these technologies at the 5,000-acre former naval weapons facility.
This collaborative partnership includes multiple 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 Connected Vehicle (CV) applications and Autonomous Vehicles (AV) technologies to define the next generation of transportation network infrastructure.
The goal is transform the way people and goods are moved and create a safer, more efficient transportation system. By testing autonomous trucks, shared automated vehicles for the first and last mile, and personal use connected and autonomous vehicles, we’re looking at multiple iterations of vehicular traffic and how they interact with each other, with pedestrians, with the environment around them. These technologies will help create jobs and economic opportunities while significantly reducing fuel consumption and emissions—directly benefiting the environment.
