Remote Driven VehicleAuthor/Presenter: Smith, M.
This workshop paper outlines the Strategic Highway Research Program ( SHRP) sponsored Remote Driven Vehicle (RDV) project. The function of the RDV system, including the technical aspects, are summarized. The RDV concept is intended to reduce highway worker fatalities by removing the drivers of shadow vehicles from the driver’s seat and placing them at a remote roadside location in the work-zone. The driver would control the vehicle by a small control console that is radio linked to the shadow vehicle.
