Safely Advancing Vehicle Automation On Roads
Lift & Shift Automation
Vehicle automation solutions cannot address all real-world scenarios and as such require a supervisor to be able to monitor and take control when it is appropriate to do so. SAVOR explores the key requirements to apply remote monitoring and teleoperation to automated vehicles as an essential safety measure in achieving L4 operation on public roads. These requirements apply both to the vehicle automation stack, the communications and the remote monitoring and control interface.
