VIDEO: Land Rover can be operated thru Remote Control in your smartphone
Land Rover is showing some of the next generation of autonomous driving technology which is planed for future models.
Is this an ultimate toy for adults? It can be. Because when someone hears “remote control car” these increasingly sophisticated scale models imagines that parents give their children with the secret intention of playing themselves. But if the company talks about it is the British Jaguar Land Rover, we are talking about another kind of gimmick.
The firm developed a prototype of its Range Rover Sport, can be controlled remotely via a smartphone app. And not only to close or open the doors: the vehicle can be driven from the application.
The car can be maneuvered remotely from parking, the owner from 3 meters range can maneuver the Land rover car at low speed. the maximum speed in remote control mode is reduced to just under 6.5 km per hour (nobody wants to escape the car and produced an accident) and must be at a distance not exceeding 3 meters from the car. Jaguar Land Rover says they could eventually add the option of voice commands to the system.
The smartphone application support (see video below) gives the owner a total remote control support to the steering, throttle and brake to maneuver obstacles comprehensively with full visibility.
It is also detailed in the video that the system can maneuver independently a Range Rover at 180 degrees to point in the opposite direction, to avoid obstacles and other road users.
Still, it remains as attractive as futuristic idea.
