Purpose and goal
The goal of REmote automateD vehicle Operation 2 (REDO2) project is to further build broader knowledge and create opportunities in the emerging field of remote operation of automated road vehicles. The main problem that the project addresses is how we can support remote operations of a vehicle fleet(s) both from technical and non-technical perspectives such as laws and regulations as well as traffic management. The project continues the work done in previous projects within the area such as REDO, HAVOC, and CORD.
Expected results and effects
The main results from the project will be prerequisites, tools, methods, and demonstrations of remote operation of automated vehicles. Furthermore, the project includes comprehensive studies on operational requirements of remote operation, as well as advice and overview on regulation and laws. Lastly, the project aims to disseminate the findings through implementation and demonstration of remote operation systems to the public. This will enhance the competitiveness of Swedish industry and academia with knowledge on creating remote operation of automated vehicles.
Planned approach and implementation
The project is divided into 7 work packages (WPs). Main research activities are distributed across 4 different WPs, which covers: 1) System-of-systems approach to remote operation; 2) Human factors in remote operation; 3) Design and support for remote operation; 4) Laws and regulations. The remaining WPs concerns administration, communication, dissimination, implementation, and demonstration.
