The stakeholders conducted a five-day open-track testing from November 14 to 18 on a newly opened, sensor-filled portion of US Interstate 24 called the I-24 Motion. They used 100 specially equipped Nissan Rogue units for the purpose. The experiment was conducted with an aim of testing an AI-equipped cruise control system and see how it influences the speed and driving behavior of surrounding cars.

The next several months will be used by the Circles team to analyze the data from the five-day experiment on the I-24 Motion "smart highway."

The I-24 Motion is the only real-world automotive testing environment of its kind in the world. Stretching four miles just southeast of downtown Nashville, it is equipped with 300 4K digital sensors that are capable of recording 260 million vehicle miles of data per year. On one single day in November, it recorded a total of 143,010 miles driven and 3,780 hours of driving.

This permanent infrastructure will act as a test bed to researchers always. Toyota North America and General Motors also supported the five-day experiment in November, providing two additional test units: Toyota RAV4 and Cadillac XT5.
