Ottopia Announces Availability of Teleoperation Software on NVIDIA DRIVE Platform
Ottopia Teleoperation Solution Designed to Remotely and Safely Monitor Autonomous Vehicles and Machines
Ottopia Technologies, the global leader in teleoperation, announced that its teleoperation software is now available on the NVIDIA DRIVE AGX platform. NVIDIA DRIVE is an open, software-defined, end-to-end platform used by the transportation industry to develop safe, autonomous vehicles at scale.
Mission-critical systems like power plants and airplanes have human supervision. Similarly, a human must be in the loop, or present, for autonomous mobility to exist. As such Ottopia, an NVIDIA DRIVE ecosystem partner, brings its teleoperation solution that allows for the safe monitoring and remote control of self-driving vehicles.
Ottopia is the only teleoperation provider to solve this problem with automotive grade technology. This is achieved by combining the key components of teleoperation, including dynamic video compression, AI-based network optimization, safety systems and cybersecurity, the latter two of which are exclusive to Ottopia. Ottopia’s platform is an ideal option for autonomous vehicle developers looking to add this capability to their self-driving systems.
“There are always going to be edge cases that autonomy alone is not equipped to handle. You will always need, and want, a human to be able to intervene. That is why Ottopia’s technology should be integrated with any autonomous system,” said Amit Rosenzweig, Ottopia’s Founder and CEO. “Ottopia’s software is optimized to efficiently run on the state-of-the-art NVIDIA DRIVE platform, so customers working in autonomous vehicles and autonomous machines can enjoy the benefits of teleoperation, right out of the box.”
“With Ottopia as an NVIDIA DRIVE ecosystem partner, developers can now access a universal teleoperation option for safe remote monitoring with tight integration to the DRIVE platform,” said Rammy Bahalul, director of autonomous machines and vehicles at NVIDIA.
