1. A method for controlling operation of an autonomous vehicle, comprising:
comparing, at a remote computing system operably connected with a processor in the autonomous vehicle, a first signal indicative of an environment in which the autonomous vehicle is arranged and a second signal indicative of the environment in which the autonomous vehicle is arranged, wherein the first signal is generated by the remote computing system based on input received from the processor of the autonomous vehicle, and the second signal is a processed signal received from an external computing system operably connected with both the remote computing system and the processor in the autonomous vehicle; and
generating, at the remote computing system, a restriction command to restrict operation of the autonomous vehicle if the step of comparing at the remote computing system indicates that the first signal and the second signal do not correspond.
