Remotely controlling mobile “things” across the Internet is challenging, especially when human passengers are aboard those things. We will discuss two cases for such remote control: teleoperated driving of not quite fully automated vehicles and, further down the road, telepiloting airtaxis. We look at communication requirements and what (today’s) networks can deliver, show (limits to) the feasibility, and hint at directions towards addressing at least some of those, inside and outside of the network.

This talk presents joint work with collaborators from TH Ingolstadt, Airbus, and Aalto University.


Jörg Ott holds the Chair of Connected Mobility at Technische Universität München in the Faculty of Informatics since August 2015. He is also Adjunct Professor at Aalto University, where he was Professor for Networking Technology with a focus on Protocols, Services, and Software from 2005 until 2015. He holds a PhD (1997) and a diploma in Computer Science (1991) from TU Berlin and a diploma in Industrial Engineering from TFH Berlin (1995).

His research interests are in network architectures, (transport) protocols, and algorithms for connecting mobile nodes to the Internet and to each other. He explores edge and in-network computing as well as decentralized—cloudless, hyperlocal—services, incorporating a range of devices all the way to mobile and microcontrollers. His research includes measuring and modeling human mobility and Internet usage as basis for design and evaluation. Privacy by design is of key importance in his systems work.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Systems Research Group Seminar series.
