Software developer Ottopia Technologies has made its automotive grade teleoperation software available on the NVIDIA DRIVE AGX platform. The software allows safe remote monitoring and control of self-driving vehicles.

Tel Aviv-based Ottopia combines the components of teleoperation, including dynamic video compression, AI-based network optimisation, safety systems and cybersecurity.

“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 optimised 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.
