Purpose and goal
Overarching goal of the project is to build knowledge and strengthen Swedish industry competitiveness in the field of remote driving. Before its deployment on public roads, remote driving systems needs to be integrated into the current systems-of-systems within the context of intelligent transport systems. Safety, efficiency, and reliability need to be guaranteed during such integration process. Therefore, the main challenge addressed in this project is on how to guarantee safety, efficiency, and reliability during deployment of remote driving systems onto public roads.
Expected results and effects
The project has built up methods and toolchains to tackle both technical and non-technical challenges. Research participants were recruited from the public as well as specific target group to perform remote driving task under different conditions. These conditions include varying delay, driving perspectives (e.g., front-view vs top-view), and different feedback modes such as auditory and/or haptic and motion feedback together with visual feedback (i.e., a video feed(s) from the vehicle). These results provide a better understanding of challenges for remote driving operation.
Planned approach and implementation
This project has been focusing on five different aspects, each has its own respective work package in the project: 1) challenges for the driver of teleoperated vehicles in a system of systems; 2) requirements on driver feedback and vehicles during teleoperation; 3) Systems-of-systems architecture and infrastructures to support teleoperated driving and control tower operation; 4) demonstrate potentials of teleoperated driving and present a reference architecture for teleoperated driving; and 5) laws and regulations concerning teleoperated driving.
