Paper Abstract

This paper outlines the human factors issues inherent in the transmission of video data over a low bandwidth secure radio channel, necessary for battlefield teleoperation of remote platforms. Bandwidth allocation for image transmission for low data rate operations is 16 kilobits per second (Kb/s), as opposed to the 63 megabits per second (Mb/s) required for standard video transmission. Radically degraded imagery affects remote driver ability. Observations of the remote driving task have pointed out areas in which further research is indicated. Human factors issues in image-compression will be investigated to favorably impact the design of enhanced image-compression techniques and future human factors research.
