Abstract

This paper presents an experimental study conducted on the remote control of a vehicle, focusing on driving behavior. At the remote control, an operator remotely controls a vehicle using visual information captured and transmitted by a camera on the controlled vehicle without feeling the information related to vehicle motion, such as acceleration, vibration, and turning of the vehicle. Thus, the quality of visual information and consideration of the lack of sensory information about vehicle motion are important for the safe and efficient operation. of a vehicle. This study aims to clarify the difference in the driving behavior during direct driving and that while driving a vehicle by remote control. In the first step of the study, the authors developed an experimental vehicle to evaluate the influence of visual information, and the relationship between the driving behavior and the quality of visual information was evaluated. In the second step, the authors developed a remotely controlled vehicle to compare the driving behavior during direct driving and that during remote driving; the driving behavior exhibited when there was no information with respect to vehicle motion was also evaluated.
