Remotes can be used for many things: changing the TV channel, playing video games, and controlling an RC auto.
So it's entirely appropriate that to celebrate the upcoming release of Gran Turismo Sport, the newest entry in the series, Nissan put together a special one-off GT-R that the driver controls not by gripping the wheels or stepping on the pedals, but by using a PlayStation 4 controller.
Controlling the vehicle from a helicopter flying above the Silverstone circuit in England, driver Jann Mardenborough achieved a top track speed of 131 miles per hour.
On Mardenborough's fastest lap (1:17:47), the GT-R/C averaged 122kmh and reached a top speed of 211kmh. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience. Damn right. Most of us will never have the opportunity to drive it, but we can play Gran Turismo Sport when it drops for the PS4 on October 17th in the United States, October 18th in Europe and Australia and October 19th in Japan.
Engineers have transformed a Nissan GT-R into the world's ultimate radio controlled racer - capable of 196mph - and raced it around Silverstone.
. Six onboard computers were able to update the controls 100 times per second, and the vehicle had a wireless range of just over half a mile.
Patriots QB Tom Brady on health: 'I'll be there Sunday'
A storm might be brewing in New England and it's not at all related to the Patriots' reliably unreliable defense. One way to do that would be to put pressure on Brady like the Panthers , and every other team this season, did.
The unmodified PS DualShock4 controller connects to a micro-computer which interprets the joystick and button signals and transmits them to the GT-R/C's on-board systems.
The GT-R/C was modified by JLB Design with four robot servos to operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle. The controller can send data wirelessly to the auto from up to one kilometer away. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver.
"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", said Mardenborough. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience. "Now that's innovation that excites!"
In 2011 he was the victor of the GT Academy, Nissan's driver discovery and development programme.
Next year it'll be used in a tour of schools in the United Kingdom to promote future careers in STEM subjects, and we're already intrigued to see how many gamer kids try to yoink it.
