TiroKart - Total Immersion Remotely Operated Go-Kart
The goal of this research project is to develop technology that allows vehicles to be remotely operated at high speeds while providing an immersive interface to the operator.
|Is it possible to race vehicles by remote control? This project intends to prove that it is. There are two major parts to this - the remotely operated go-kart and the immersive remote control system. Using an HMD, 3D cameras, stereo audio, head tracking, steering wheel and pedals the aim is provide the "plugged-in" feeling needed to race a vehicle. Telemetry on the go-kart will include IMU data, lidar data and rear view mirror cameras to allow a detailed "virtual dashboard" to be provided to the operator including a real-time track map. Beagleboards will be used as part of the onboard processing system.
