Regional Proving Ground: Become an Affiliate

MapThe San Diego Regional Proving Ground (RPG) partners welcome organizations interested in testing vehicles and technology in real-world environments. The San Diego RPG consortium operates on a cost-recovery model and affiliates will find value in having access to other affiliates in the private sector, public sector, and academia, and informing the direction of technology research and policy that contributes to a safer future. Please contact the project manager to become an affiliate.

The San Diego Regional Proving Ground is the only proving ground that provides three real-world environments for testing road-ready technologies. Affiliates interested in testing that requires a permit should review the permit process and contact us to discuss your application.
