Workshop: Smart City and The Dilemma of Autonomous Vehicles – Is remote driving the solution?

Technological, social, and economic forces are changing the notion of mobility as culture is exerting strong pressure on demand for a “shared,” “reliable” and “on-demand” economy. In an era of the next mobility revolution, autonomous vehicles (AV) still fail to overcome edge cases that can stop an AV in their tracks. Remote driving has, however, emerged as a practical and promising solution to help AV in edge cases, such as AVs passing through bad weather or near a construction site. Furthermore, Mr. Ali Gohar will elaborate on the state of the art of AVs and remote driving and why remote driving seems a possible feasible solution in the long run!
