Automated Driving Test Center (Jtown)

Jtown is an automated driving test center constructed as a subsidized project of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's "Development Project of Automated Driving Test Center" in order to address issues in the cooperative areas of automated driving technology and develop future evaluation methods through industry-academia-government collaboration.

The Jtown site is approximately 160,000 square meters, and comprises three areas: the "Specific environment area" indoor facility that can reproduce environmental conditions such as rain, fog and sunshine; the "V2X urban area" test facility for cooperative automated driving systems using communication systems; and the "Versatile urban area" that can reproduce various types of intersection using mock buildings and road signs, etc.
