Nissan Raced A GT-R Around A Track At 210KM/H, Using A PS4 Controller
Six onboard computers were able to update the controls 100 times per second, and the auto had a wireless range of just over half a mile.
Nissan then put famously successful NISMO racing driver Jann Mardenborough in a helicopter, flying at low altitude - the company needed special permission for that - and unleashed him and the GT-R/C on the track at Silverstone.
British racing driver Jann Mardenborough, who was the third and youngest victor of GT Academy in 2011, took the GT-R /C for a spin around Silverstone race track in the UK. It's a good thing the driver knows how to play Gran Turismo Sport, I'm sure Nissan wouldn't appreciate bouncing this auto off the walls of the track.
The company used servomotors and robotics so the steering, acceleration, braking, and transmission of the auto - based on a 2011 Nissan R35 GT-R - could be controlled remotely. Extensively modified to be driven entirely by a DualShock 4 controller, the GT-R /C was put through its paces by NISMO athlete and GT Academy victor Jann Mardenborough around Silverstone.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is popularly known as The Swamp. "'The Swamp' is a place where only Gators get out alive", Spurrier said. Florida , which sits at 3-2, will need some of that swamp action if they want to bounce back from last week's loss to LSU.
The GT-R /C managed an impressive average speed of 76 miles per hour and topped out at 131 miles per hour - drivers behind the wheel of non-RC cars usually average around 83mph on the circuit. The controller can send data wirelessly to the vehicle from up to one kilometer away.
The controller itself is hooked up to a micro-computer that interprets the joystick and button signals, transmitting them to the GT-R /C's onboard systems. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver. Steering, acceleration and braking all allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights. "Now that's innovation that excites!" Gran Turismo Sport will be released in the US on October 17, in Europe and Australia on October 18, and in Japan on October 19.
The world's first gaming controller operated Nissan GT-R is a reality - yes, all you unbathed gamers who haven't seen the light of day, this really happened.
Nissan plans to use the vehicle to tour primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom to promote careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
