Research Internship: Importance of stereo cameras for depth perception in teleoperated driving

Nearly all teleoperated road vehicles rely on live data transmission of regular 2D monoscopic cameras. Based on this, sufficient depth perception that is required for accurate control in dense environments is difficult. Existing works in the robotics and military field show improved depth perception and operator performance when using stereoscopic view [1]-[4]. The objective of this project is to evaluate the drivers performance with monoscopic and steroscopic views based on the CARLA simulator [5].
