Nissan builds life-size RC sports vehicle that uses PS4 controller

The PS4 controller was connected to a microcomputer that took the joystick inputs and sent them to the onboard systems inside the auto. The driver is the victor of the latest season of GT Academy, Jann Mardenborough.

The cool auto was made to celebrate twenty years of Nissan's involvement with the Gran Turismo franchise as well as the upcoming release of Gran Turismo Sport, which gets released in the United States on October 17.

The auto ultimately completed a lap of 1:17.47, averaging 76 miles per hour (122 km/h) and hitting a top speed of 131 miles per hour (211 km/h).

Honeypreet confesses to role in Panchkula violence
She was summoned by the Police for interrogation in cases related to violence and arson after dera chief's conviction. Chawla had told ANI that Honeypreet was not cooperating with the police in its interrogation.

GT Academy victor and full-time Nismo racer Jann Mardenborough demonstrated the effectiveness of the system at Silverstone on its 1.6-mile National circuit, where he controlled the 542bhp supercar - the GT-R /C was based on a 2011-spec model - from a low-flying helicopter above.

The GT-R /C, as it has been named, has been modified by United Kingdom firm JLB Design with mechanical parts to control the steering, throttle and brakes, as well as the gear selector, so it can be driven externally without anyone on board. 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. It's a good thing the driver knows how to play Gran Turismo Sport, I'm sure Nissan wouldn't appreciate bouncing this vehicle off the walls of the track. The wireless operation has a primary control range of one kilometer.

That micro-computer is responsible for interpreting the joystick and button signals and transmitting those signals to the car's onboard systems. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver.
