Drive This Range Rover With Your Smartphone Just Like James Bond (VIDEO)
Jaguar Land Rover has developed a Range Rover you can drive via remote control using an app on your smartphone. Yup, just like James Bond did in “Tomorrow Never Dies.”
The idea is that instead of being in the car when you make delicate maneuvers – you can just do it outside, in safety (I guess).
I can’t believe this technology exists now. In a few years, this could totally be in production.
Land Rover is researching a new remote control technology that represents a stepping stone towards the fully autonomous car. It could be used by the driver to maneuver their car out of difficult situations safely or negotiate challenging terrain, whilst walking alongside the car at a maximum speed of 4mph.
The Multi-Point Turn Range Rover Sport is also capable of autonomously maneuvering through 180 degrees, with the system taking over gear selection, steering, braking and acceleration.
