Remote Drivers Provide Backup to Autonomous Vehicles

June 18, 2018

The CBS Weekend News reported on Phantom Auto in its nightly broadcast, explaining that the company “uses cell phone signals and cameras already mounted to the vehicle, so a remote driver can take over in a situation where the car doesn’t know what to do.” The company helps self-driving vehicles through difficult-to-navigate situations, such as construction sites. The news piece mentions that federal regulations for self-driving vehicles “are stalled in Congress,” and states differ on how they treat self-driving cars. CBS says some states are taking “a second look at their regulations” following the fatal car accident involving a pedestrian and an Uber car operating autonomously.
