Ottopia in Israel has launched an AI-powered remote driving platform and customer programme.

The Ottopia platform allows OEMs and autonomous vehicles (AV) companies to offer a remote driver service. The system has been tested in over 20 cities over the span of 6 years and is currently being integrated into serial production.

Rather than relying on autonomous driving software, Ottopia is using predictive network algorithms, dynamic cross-channel forward error correction and Real Time Super Resolution (RTSR) to allow remote operators to chauffeur car owners. It already works with Hyundai, EasyMile and Serve Robotics as well as system suppliers Magna and Nvidia.

“It’s the stuff of science fiction coming to life. With a press of a button, you can connect with a remote human operator, with the ability to navigate any environment safely and precisely,” said Ottopia’s CEO and Founder Amit Rosenzweig. “Our consumer survey revealed that over 40% intend to use remote driving at least weekly and are willing to pay for the luxury, comfort and immense benefit of the many hours our solution will save them.”

Ottopia integrates existing car components such as cameras and modems into its current system architecture. It uses two standard LTE connections, enabling dynamic streaming of ultra-low latency video feeds and accurate visual information about the vehicle’s surroundings. The solution is chipset-agnostic meaning it works with almost any compute platform.

The control centre also offers a comprehensive user interface for remote driving operations, support, and services. Built-in safety and security measures include secure development protocols and a safety policy engine to maintain high standards of operation, as well as state-of-the-art encryption and authentication.

New SDKs and performance optimization tools are part of the customer programme launch for integration with vehicle platforms, enabling OEMs to launch services faster.

“Our mission is to transform the way people and goods are moving. Our first product is for enabling humans in a remote command & control center to act as your on-demand private driver for things like finding a parking spot, recharging and refueling, periodic check-ups and repairs, running errands, family drop-offs and pickups, and even driving you when you’re too tired or stressed to drive yourself,” said Alex Kirshon, CTO of Ottopia.

The company holds nine granted patents and has twenty more pending. Ottopia’s patented software is currently utilized in a variety of vehicles, including cars, buses, yard and long-haul trucks, construction machines, and delivery vehicles.
