The automated development vehicle will be tested by Honda Research Institute USA at GoMentum Station, a 5,000-acre automated and connected vehicle proving ground in the San Francisco Bay Area. The GoMentum Station is meant to mimic real roads with its 20-miles of paved, city-like roadway grids, buildings and other urban infrastructure.
