Remotes can be used for many things: changing the TV channel, playing video games, and controlling an RC auto. Mardenborough was spawn through the GT Academy which takes gaming drivers and transforms them into real-life racing drivers.
A one-off Nissan GT-R has been created that is remotely controlled by a Sony PlayStation 4 controller.
To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4, Nissan built a auto that perfectly blends video game driving and real-life racetrack antics.
The one-off GT-R /C was engineered in the United Kingdom by JLB Design Ltd and extensively modified with four robots that operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle. The remote-control vehicle is capable of a top speed of 315 km/h- not restricted for the objective of the project auto - with no one sitting behind the wheel. The Nissan GT-R is generally referred as "the PlayStation sports car", because of the fact that when before the first Gran Turismovideo game was released in 1998, more of the world of English speakers was unaware of the halo vehicle of Nissan. Six computers the boot update the controls up to 100 times a second; the steering position is measured to one part in 65 000. On Mardenborough's fastest lap (1:17:47), the GT-R /C averaged 76 mph/122 kph and reached a top speed of 131 mph/211 kph.
Nissan has come up with something very appreciable innovation to celebrate releasing of the Gran Turismo Sport on 18th October. However, the controller had one serious modification, a range of one kilometre.
To help Mardenborough judge the vehicle's speed through the corners, a Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor was installed to relay speed data to a LCD display in the helicopter cockpit.
Since taking out the GT Academy in 2011, Mardenborough has gone on to become a full-time professional driver for Nissan in Japan.
"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", said Mardenborough.
James Brighton, JLB Design Ltd, added: "The GT-R /C presented some unique challenges and a number of engineering firsts for us".
Insane promotional efforts aside, this GT-R/C will serve some useful objective in 2018 on a tour of primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom to promote future careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects.
