In the age of self-driving advancements, ensuring the safety and efficiency of autonomous vehicles is paramount. TIER IV’s L4 Remote Monitoring provides crucial components like automotive cameras, microphones for remote observation, a cloud-based video streaming server, and an intuitive monitoring application. The real-time recreation of a vehicle’s driving surroundings using the images and audio gathered is set to bolster the safety and user experience of AD services.
- Technology Components: The L4 Remote Monitoring solution encompasses automotive cameras, microphones for a comprehensive monitoring experience, a video streaming server based on cloud technology, and a user-friendly monitoring application.
- Real-world Application: TIER IV’s groundbreaking remote AD technology has been tested and showcased in various Proof of Concept (PoC) trials, notable ones being at Narita Airport and Central Tokyo’s Nishi-Shinjuku.
