NeCSCar is an electrical vehicle (scale 1:3) used as an experimental platform to study new control architectures. The vehicle is designed to be remotely tele-operated from our active steering-wheel platform, ant it will be equipped of a 3D vision system to provide the operator with stereo vision capabilities. Bilateral teleoperation can be performed using wheel contact torque measurements, fed back for force deflexion; wireless connection allows us to test coding algorithms, resource sharing, and robustness against transmission delays.

NeCSCar has been recently used for simulation tests in the framework of the VolHand project, a multi-disciplinary project with the goal to develop a new generation of electronic power assistance steering (EPAS) systems for disabled people.
