WIVW hosts expert workshop on the requirements for vehicle tele operators

At the beginning of February 2024 an expert workshop was held at WIVW GmbH on behalf of the “Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen” (Federal Highway Research Institute, BASt). The aim was to discuss the minimum requirements to be met by future tele operators. Three working groups discussed the topics of previous experience and suitability, different stages of training, as well as inspection and monitoring.

Background: In teledriving, information on the vehicle's condition and surroundings, e.g., sensor data and video streams, is transmitted from the vehicle to a remote-control center. There, the data is made available to a person who controls the vehicle remotely.
