GM completes Oshawa, Ontario test track for self-driving and connected cars


A few years ago in 2019, GM revealed plans to build a test track beside its Oshawa plant and now it’s announced that it’s finished.

The automaker calls the track the CTC McLaughlin Advanced Technology Track (CTC MATT). According to GM Canada’s press release, it features a large oval design with four lanes ranging from 60-100km/h.

The track is designed to help GM expand its testing scope related to self-driving and connected cars. This includes “software and hardware for advanced vehicle systems, including vehicle motion embedded controls, advanced driver assistance systems, autonomous vehicle systems, infotainment and advanced technology work,” reads GM’s release.
