Nissan creates the biggest remote controlled GT-R ever

Share

The huge RC auto has been remotely driven by a British professional racing driver and GT Academy victor, Jann Mardenborough around the Silverstone race track.

It was the flawless opportunity for Jann to show off his skills after he made it to the top tier of racing after impressing in Nissan's GT Academy that takes amateur gamers and gives them a shot at real-life motorsport. 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 GT-R/C was modified by JLB Design with four robot servos to operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle. Obviously having a ball, Mardenborough didn't hold back, averaging 122 km/h (76 mph), reaching a top speed of 211 km/h (131 mph) and clocking a lap of 1:17:47. The controller itself was completely unmodified connected to a microcomputer with a wireless operation control range of one kilometre.

Also, it has an estimated price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 16.37 and a trailing 12-month price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 75.69. After $-0.10 actual EPS reported by Plug Power Inc for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts -70.00% EPS growth.

The only other gadget for Jann was a LCD display mounted the helicopter's cockpit to show the car's speed.

That micro-computer is responsible for interpreting the joystick and button signals and transmitting those signals to the car's onboard systems.

Mardenborough described the event as "once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff". "The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible".

When they got home, the mother didn't realize her son was missing and ended up falling asleep while watching a movie, Monson said. Police said a mother didn't realize until the next morning that she had left her 3-year-old at a corn maze the night before.

And he was impressed with the vehicle, saying: "The response from the auto when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be".

However, if Mardenborough got it wrong, they had two operators on different radio frequencies who could remotely apply the GT-R/C's ABS brakes and cut power to the engine should Mardenborough lose control.

Nissan has come up with something very appreciable innovation to celebrate releasing of the Gran Turismo Sport on 18th October. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience.

Its arrival coincides with the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi in the US , which launched in 1997. The mini Tamagotchi devices have been launched with a suggested retail price of £9.99.

Insane promotional efforts aside, this GT-R/C will serve some useful goal 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.
