Invest Ottawa and the Government of Ontario have partnered to launch the Ottawa L5 Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) Test Facilities, an innovation network focused on self-driving vehicles.
The government says the move — which is valued at more than $11 million CAD — will help further Ottawa’s contribution to the economy while also expanding Ontario’s global CAV presence through the development of CAV solutions, firms and jobs.
The facilities are located in Kanata North, Ottawa, which is home to Canada’s largest technology park. In total, they provide nine kilometres of public roads and 16 kilometres of private tracks for testing. These testing grounds have been built to endure weather in all four seasons, including heavy snow, sleet and ice.ttps://mobilesyrup.com/2019/05/17/self-driving-car-innovation-network-ottawa/
