Abstract:

Most current teleoperated ground vehicle systems require a high-bandwidth link to support either real-time streaming video or streamed 3D structure back to the operator control unit, and experience significant performance degradation in the presence of communication latencies as small as 100 milliseconds. These latency and bandwidth requirements severely hamper use of teleop systems in situations where latency is high and/or bandwidth is low. The goal of the proposed work is to construct such a system by combining a vehicle safeguarding approach with a solution for effective 3D data compression, and coupling it with a novel approach for controlling the intended vehicle path.
