Paper Abstract

One of the main issues with remote teleoperation of vehicles is that during visual operation, one relies on fixed camera positions that ultimately constrain the operator's view of the real world. The paper describes a solution that has been developed at QinetiQ where the operator his given a unique virtual perspective of the vehicle and the surrounding terrain as the vehicle operates. This system helps to solve problems that are generic to remote systems, such as reduction of high data transmission rates and providing 360 degree(s) three dimensional operator view positions regardless of terrain features, light levels and near real time operation. A summary of technologies is listed that could be applied to different types of vehicles and placed in many different situations in order to enhance operator spatial awareness.
