Self driving technology always seems to be just beyond our grasp. Every year the leaders of this technological revolution say “soon”. The reason is a seemingly never-ending list of edge cases, situations which autonomy is incapable of handling. Hence the critical need — now and always — for safe teleoperation


A path to safe teleoperation of autonomous vehicles

The greatest contribution autonomous driving can bring to everyday lives is making the roads safer for all. In 2019, approximately 38,000 people lost their lives due to car accidents. Perhaps some of these were unavoidable by even the best of drivers. …


Self-driving cars have been all talk and very little action for nearly a decade. Operational perfection always seems “another ten years away”. This is hardly news. But there is big news on the automotive technology front. It’s called teleoperation, and it’s here to meet, and overcome challenges that autonomy cannot.


Ensuring safety in a teleoperation platform is the most important element in Ottopia’s mission. Safety is a topic that arises with all of our partners and customers. …

The US legal system allowing states to regulate their own roads has been an important element in securing the US lead in the autonomous vehicle (AV) technology race. In July 2019, Florida became the sixth US state to legalize vehicle teleoperation — a technology that enables a human operator to…


Entering a new age for connected cars

Mobility without connectivity might be almost unthinkable; or at the very least, it would seem from an entirely different era.

Without an internet connection among passengers, drivers or vehicles, there would be no ride-hailing, no updated routes and ETAs, limited fleet management and…


With the attention around AVs (Autonomous Vehicles) usually going to the latest technology developments — or the latest setbacks — in the space, it may be easy for some to forget the true potential of autonomous mobility.

Hosted in Chicago last week, the Shared Use Mobility Summit (SUMC) centered on…
