Software Modules and Communication to Support Real-Time Remote Control and Monitoring of Unmanned Vehicles
Unmanned vehicles usage for professional, recreational and healthy pur-posed has increased and is a huge signal of their advantages. The most noto-rious benefits they represent have in fact that they do not have human lives aboard, which means that there is no risk of injuries in dangerous tasks. Although, most of the time the users are near the vehicles, which cannot be possible nor proper for personal or security reasons. Therefore, it is pro-posed a software solution to allow users to control and monitor unmanned vehicles remotely in real-time as if they were in the vehicles’ place. Then it follows an implementation to control and monitor remotely-piloted cars of different types. This solution has been applied to a real-case scenario for testing purposes and it has been concluded that the software architecture proposed can be generically applied to different kinds of vehicles with transparency to the users, that are able to control from everywhere, with their own personal devices, whatever vehicles they want.
