Nissan creates the biggest remote controlled GT-R ever

Nissan creates the biggest remote controlled GT-R ever

Its latest stunt is the ideal cross-over between real life and video games, though - the company hooked up a GT-R with servomotors and robotics to control steering, acceleration, braking and gearshifts, and then made all that run through a PlayStation 4 controller. "We had to ensure the robotics would work properly during fast acceleration and high lateral g-forces, they had to deliver realistic control of the auto at all speeds, and the connection the vehicle and the DualShock4 controller had to be fast and reliable". Many of the Nissan cars including GT-R are considering as a part of games, while the automaker also has used those series as a tool for recruiting the drivers for factory race via the company's program, i.e. GTAcademy. Six computers mounted in the rear of the auto update the controls at up to 100 times a second. Mardenborough controlled the GT-R /C from the cockpit of a helicopter, turning in a fastest lap of 1:17:47 while averaging 76 miles per hour and hitting a top speed of 131 miles per hour.

Mardenborough, who was discovered by Nissan when he won the gaming GT Academy in 2011 before being thrust into a professional motorsport career, said: "The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual one of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible".

The fastest lap the auto made around the track was a 1:17.47 with the vehicle averaging 76 miles per hour and hitting a top speed of 131 miles per hour. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. The wireless operation has a primary control range of one kilometer. 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.




A Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor relayed speed information to an LCD display in the helicopter for Mardenborough to judge speeds with.

The controls certainly don't seem ideal, but Mardenborough was able to get the GT-R past 130 miles per hour at Silverstone while piloting it from a helicopter.

Nissan has come up with something very appreciable innovation to celebrate releasing of the Gran Turismo Sport on 18th October.
