SANDAG Region Chosen as Autonomous Vehicle Proving Ground

USDOT designated the San Diego region as one of their ten proving grounds for autonomous vehicles. The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), Caltrans, and the City of Chula Vista jointly submitted the application with support from several auto manufactures and technology companies. SANDAG’s region is the only proving ground to incorporate a state/regional/local/private partnership. USDOT designated proving grounds will offer opportunities for sharing information and developing best practices concerning the safe deployment of autonomous vehicles.
