Transportation authority grants permission for driverless car testing

A testing hub for self-driving cars and smart traffic technologies is being developed on a 2,100-acre site at the Concord Naval Weapons Station north of Concord, Calif. Honda and Mercedes-Benz have signed up to be among the five automakers and 15 tech companies to use the GoMentum Station. The local transportation authority is also identifying incentives for companies relocating R&D centers or satellite offices in Concord.
