Nissan made a DualShock-controlled auto to promote 'GT Sport'

The stunt was put together to mark the release of Gran Turismo Sport, out on October 18 on PS4. The unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller was then connected to a micro-computer that interprets the controller inputs and transmits them to the vehicle. Mardenborough controlled the GT-R /C from the cockpit of a helicopter.

No stranger to a gamepad then, Jann clocked a fastest lap of 1 minute 17 seconds with an average speed of 76mph, hitting a top speed of 131 miles per hour.

Google Home Mini was eavesdropping on consumers
The issue prevailed over the few initial units of Google Home Mini , including the ones that were distributed as review units. Russakovskii swapped the device with Google , whose engineers determined that the device was registering "phantom" touches.

This specially designed GT-R was equipped with six computers mounted in the rear of the auto to update the controls at up to 100 times a second, while four robots operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle. Six computers mounted in the rear of the GT-R/C communicate back and forth between the controller and the auto up to 100 times per second. 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 controller itself was completely unmodified connected to a microcomputer with a wireless operation control range of one kilometre. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver. The low-flying chopper reportedly had trouble keeping up with the 542bhp vehicle, but there were two independent safety systems in place that would have stopped the GT-R /C if Mardenborough lost control at any point.

Jann said: "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff". 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.

"China is firmly opposed to that and has lodged stern presentations with the US", Hua said, using the term for official diplomatic protests.

He added: "Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights".

This is the Nissan GT-R/C, a full-size, unrestricted, 2011-model R35, capable of 313km/h, modified to be driven remotely entirely by a DualShock®4 controller.

Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation. Start the countdown, friends, because in 10 days, you'll be able to walk into a storefront hosted by Google .

After this demonstration run, Nissan will tour the GT-R/C around schools in the United Kingdom to promote STEM education.
