Mightier with the controller than you are with all the steering wheel?

Well, you might extravagant Nissan’s modified GT-R/C, which can be powered with a PlayStation 4 controller, plus was created for the release of Gran Turismo Sport.

The vehicle was given a spin around Silverstone’s National Circuit, with driver Jann Mardenborough steering the GT-R from the helicopter above the circuit.  

It’s understandably a complex animal: The car has four robots which usually operate the steering, transmission, brake systems and throttle; while six computer systems at the back of the car look after the regulates.

The Dualshock PS4 control used for the GT-R/C is unmodified, but has a range of one km.  

On its quickest lap of 1: 17: 47, the particular GT-R/C averaged 76 mph (122 kph) and reached a top swiftness of 131 mph (211 kph). Not bad.

For safety, you will find a Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor which usually sends speed data to an FLAT SCREEN screen in the helicopter. There’s also 2 independent safety systems on individual radio frequencies, which will allow two various operators to brake or reduce the engine if required.  

Following the demo run, the particular GT-R/C will be toured around in order to schools in the UK to promote STEM schooling. Okay, but can we have a single?
