Teleoperation for autonomous and driverless vehicles requires reliable, low-latency connectivity. With the growing traction of 5G networks, we dive deeper into the technology to analyze how it serves teleoperation needs. 5G and Autonomous Vehicles Teleoperation One of the first questions we get when we start talking about teleoperation grade connectivity is “Doesn’t 5G provide the […]
With autonomous vehicle deployment growing around the globe, government officials are becoming increasingly confident in self-driving cars. This is evidenced by the recent spate of autonomous fleets approved for travel without safety drivers on board in multiple cities. Some companies have grown bullish enough about their driverless vehicles to put a price on a ride.
It is widely accepted that teleoperation plays a critical role in deploying large-scale autonomous fleets. It is also widely acknowledged that remote operation or supervision is not a trivial task. In this article, we provide highlights of an in-depth study on the human interface challenges of teleoperation: “Driving from a Distance: Challenges and Guidelines for
Delivery robots on sidewalks from the US to Japan are showcasing the viability of autonomous vehicles to the masses. They are now the number one driverless vehicle use case in terms of deployed units, with commercial deployments active worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic fueled an increase in last-mile delivery services, but even looking ahead, growth is
Robotaxis, driverless shuttles, sidewalk delivery robots – all have made huge progress in autonomous driving, but they all also still need to have the ability for a remote human operator to supervise them – and when needed, intervene. All driverless use cases require teleoperation, and teleoperation relies on public cellular networks coverage. A quick reminder
Seems like there is a new Robot Delivery service in the news almost every day, and according to research, the growth trend has only just started – the global delivery robot market is expected to grow from $3.53 billion in 2020 to $30.05 billion by 2030. What’s driving this huge growth? Let’s look at the
DriveU.auto’s platform is being used to remotely supervise an industry leader’s driverless passenger shuttles Autonomous vehicle teleoperation company DriveU.auto is deploying its solution in autonomous technology provider EasyMile’s flagship autonomous shuttles. EasyMile develops autonomous vehicle solutions that tackle identified use-cases very precisely, using common-core, unique technology. With deployments in more than 400 locations around the
Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) have arrived, in a big way. Once a rare and social media-worthy event, sightings of driverless vehicles have become part of the scenery in many places. In fact, it seems that not a week goes by without the announcement of another new AV-powered service. Autonomous driving is a remarkably complex problem, as
The Autonomous Vehicle industry is shifting gears and moving toward commercial deployments with numerous AV operations on nearly all continents. But there are still important building blocks needed for large-scale deployment: To quote Karl Iagnemma, CEO of Motional: “Alongside driverless technology, we need the right policies and economic incentives to make the ecosystem operate smoothly.
We often think of driving in binary terms — either a human is driving a car 100% of the time, or a computer is driving a car 100% of the time, i.e., autonomous vehicles. In most cases, the reality is actually more of a hybrid. As we discussed in a previous article, this makes perfect
