Designing a remote driving interface is a really complex problem. Numerous steps must be validated and prepared for the interface to be robust, efficient, and easy to use. We have designed different parts of this interface: the architecture of the remote driving, the mixed reality rendering part, and a simulator to test the interface. The remote driving interface is called SACARI (Supervision of an Autonomous Car by an Augmented Reality Interface) and is mainly working with an autonomous car developed by the IEF lab.
