Watch a Remote-Control Nissan GT-R Take on Silverstone

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

Nissan has created a GT-R that can be controlled using a Sony PlayStation DualShock 4 controller to mark the launch of the next Gran Turismo video game in what is the 10th year of the R35.

The one-off project auto was extensively modified to be driven entirely by a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller to celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport, out in Europe and Australasia on October 18th, and marking 20 years of Nissan involvement in the Gran Turismo gaming series.

The auto was a standard-spec GT-R with its 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 producing 419kW. JLB Design converted a standard 2011 GT-R from the year Mardenborough won Nissan and Gran Turismo's GT Academy program into the GT-R/C.

In celebration of Gran Turismo Sport for the PS4, Nissan creates a one-off project auto that is modded to be driven via a PS4 controller. Four robots inside the auto controlled the steering, transmission, throttle and brakes. Fitted with six rear-mounted computers relaying information between the controller and vehicle at 100 times per seconds, the GT-R/C also featured a Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor to relay speed data to an LCD display for Mardenborough.

Croatia in Elite Group of New UEFA Nations League Competition
England will be in Pot 2 for the group stage draw of the 2018 UEFA Nations League draw, which takes place on January 24. Perhaps the most important part of the new Nations League is that it offers a route to qualification for Euro 2020.

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4, Nissan heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely by a DualShock®4 controller. Six computers also connected everything together and were able to make adjustments up to 100 times per second.

That micro-computer is responsible for interpreting the joystick and button signals and transmitting those signals to the car's onboard systems. On his fasted lap with the GT-R/C, he clocked a time of 1 minute, 17.47 seconds, which is impressive considering that the Silverstone single-lap record of 1 minute, 30.621 seconds was set by a fully race-prepped F1 vehicle. However, the controller had one serious modification, a range of one kilometre. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver.

Mardenborough described the event as "once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff". JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. "Now that's innovation that excites!" As a victor of the Nissan GT Academy competition that combines virtual racing with actual track races, Mardenborough was a natural choice for the task.

Nissan will also use the vehicle in a tour of primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom next year to promote future careers in STEM.
