The Israeli Smart Transportation Research Center (ISTRC) at the Technion in collaboration with Bar-Ilan University was established jointly by the Smart Mobility Initiative in Israel's Prime Minister’s Office and the Council For Higher Education, with the aim of encouraging research and development, entrepreneurship and industry in the field of smart mobility in Israel. The ISTRC holds yearly conferences during which selected research works are presented. In the 3rd Annual & Students Conference of the Israeli Smart Transportation Research Center, Felix Tener, a 2nd-year IDIT member, received the "Best Student Conference Presentation Award" for his research work Investigating Intervention Road Scenarios for Teleoperation of Autonomous Vehicles.
AutomotiveUI (or short: AutoUI) is the International ACM SIGCHI Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications. It is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. The conference annually brings together over 200 researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications, to provide a forum for exchanging technical information concerning research (and practice) and educational activities for motor vehicle user interface development. In AutomotiveUI'23, Felix Tener, a 2nd-year IDIT member, was selected to demonstrate his research work titled "Design of a High-Level Guidance User Interface for Teleoperation of Autonomous Vehicles". Felix is going to demonstrate a high-fidelity interactive prototype of a novel user interface he designed for the teleoperation of autonomous vehicles without taking full control of remote vehicles.
