Nissan builds life-size RC sports vehicle that uses PS4 controller

Nissan Raced A GT-R Around A Track At 210KM/H, Using A PS4 Controller

This Real-Life Nissan GT-R Is Controlled With A PlayStation Controller

Six computers mounted in the rear of the GT-R/C communicate back and forth between the controller and the vehicle up to 100 times per second.

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

Since taking out the GT Academy in 2011, Mardenborough has gone on to become a full-time professional driver for Nissan in Japan.

Celebrating the release of Gran Turismo Sport - and marking 20 years of Nissan involvement in the Gran Turismo gaming series - the one-off project auto was extensively modified to be driven entirely by a DualShock4 controller. Specifically, it's the GT-R/C, since it's a radio-controlled GT-R, piloted with a standard DualShock 4 controller that's plugged into a computer that remotely controls a series of robots installed in the car's interior which manipulate the wheel, accelerator, brakes, and transmission. Extensively modified to be driven entirely by a DualShock 4 controller, the GT-R /C was put through its paces by NISMO athlete and GT Academy victor Jann Mardenborough around Silverstone. 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.

A Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor relayed speed information to an LCD display in the helicopter for Mardenborough to judge speeds with.

"This was 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", said Mardenborough. 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.

The controls certainly don't seem flawless, but Mardenborough was able to get the GT-R past 130 miles per hour at Silverstone while piloting it from a helicopter.

Called the Nissan GT-R /C, the project helps celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport, and marks 20 years of Nissan involvement with the franchise. "Now that's innovation that excites!"

But in the helicopter, Jann was using a regular PS4 controller that you use to play Gran Turismo or Grand Theft Auto in your living room.
