Workshop on Remote Operation of Intelligent Connected and Automated Road Vehicles

The workshop will be held on Sunday 2nd June 2024 in conjunction with the IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium 2024. Online participation will be available for workshop participants. However, presenters who have submitted papers are required to attend the conference in person.

Date: Sunday, June 2, 2024

Time: To be announced (half-day event)

Place: Jeju Shinhwa World, Jeju Island, South Korea

Registration information: https://ieee-iv.org/2024/registration/ External link.

This workshop intends to serve as a common research arena to initiate multi-disciplinary discussions on different components around remote operation of intelligent connected and automated vehicles on the road. This is the fourth workshop following the first three workshops on the same topic at IV2021, IV2022, and IV2023 (see below for info on previous workshops).

Road vehicles of interest include (but are not limited to) connected and automated vehicles that are passenger cars, trucks, and shuttles or buses. In this context, we assume there is a remote operator who operates the vehicle from a distance via wireless communication network. The remote operation is done at a remote operation station, where necessary interfaces for remotely operating the vehicle(s) are provided.

The workshop consists of three main parts: presentations from invited speakers, workshop paper presentations, and an interactive research discussion session. The workshop will start with presentations to set the stage on the current state of remote operation technologies. Workshop papers will be presented and invited speakers will state their latest insights on this hot topic. During the last part of the workshop, an interactive format will enable an in-depth debate in which workshop participants from industry, government, and research sectors across multiple countries will share experiences and ideas, as well as discuss design and technology goals for the future. We will discuss prospective research directions and develop ideas on how to tackle them.

  • Remote operation of road vehicles
  • Connectivity challenges in road vehicle remote operation
  • Human factors in road vehicle remote operation
  • Human-machine interface for the remote operation of road vehicles
  • Standards, laws, and regulations related to remote operation of road vehicles
  • Vehicle design and technology to support remote operation of road vehicles
  • System architecture for remote operation of road vehicles

For the first submission, a manuscript in US Letter format can be of 6-8 pages.

For the final submission, a manuscript should be of six (6) pages including references. A maximum of two (2) supplementary pages is permitted at an extra charge of 100 USD per page.

Submission guideline

We announce that papers submitted for workshops will undergo the same rigorous review process as our main conference papers. Once accepted, these papers will also be published in the conference proceedings. Authors of all accepted workshop papers are required to present in person at the event.

If you are interested in contributing, please take the following steps:

  1. Prepare your paper according to the template above.

  2. Authors are invited to submit full-length papers up to 6 pages in the final submission, but the first submission can be up to 10 pages for technical content including figures and references. Additional pages will be charged at the rate of $100 per page and is limited to two pages per paper. Each accepted paper must be covered by at least one non-student registration.

  3. Submit using the Workshop Code: RemoteOperation. Authors should use the unique code assigned to the chosen workshop when submitting your paper via PaperCept.
