AMG is the program manager for GoMentum Station, one of the nation’s largest secure testing facility for connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). GoMentum Station provides a unique and varied terrain and infrastructure for testing the latest developments in transportation technology. AMG staff helped to co-found this collaborative partnership which 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 CAV technologies to define the next generation of transportation network infrastructure.
The goal of the program which is now operated by Automobile Association of America, Northern California, Nevada, and Utah (AAA, NCNU) is to 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, GoMentum is 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.
