RemoteFeel final demo

The showing the final demo from the RemoteFeel project to FIMA members was long postponed due to various meeting restrictions imposed by the pandemic. In this first live FIMA event after the long break, we showed the hands-on demo with remote operation of a wheel loader through stereoscopic and surround video streamed over the commercial 5G network from Elisa. Since the end of RemoteFeel, 5G routers have finally become commercially available, and we have also implemented video encoding to the system to limit the bandwidth requirements. Based on the good feedback from the participants, further adjustments still need to be made to optimize the encoding for reduced latency. The remote operation solution is current a part of further development and commercialization activities of the project MIRO – Mixed Reality Operation for Mobile Machines.
