The growing field of teleoperations enables humans in remote locations to take over the controls of an Autonomous Vehicle (AV) when necessary, such as when lane markings are missing or an unexpected detour. Ottopia, an Israeli technology startup focused on remote assistance for self-driving cars, uses a combination of Artificial Intelligence and old-fashioned human intelligence to work together for remote intervention. The company was founded last year by the former head of the AVs and Robotics branch of the Israeli Defense Forces, Leon Altarac, and the former head of Product Management for Microsoft’s cyber-security unit, Amit Rosenzweig. They believe that this combination of AI and human remote drivers is what it will take to solve the “last mile” towards fully autonomous vehicles.
