This is how a remote control Range Rover Sport works to scale 1:1

We are sure many of you have played with remote control cars, the sensation of controlling a vehicle from an outside perspective is very different -like a video game- and allows us to contemplate the action with some advantages. What we had never thought of is to control something as big as a Range Rover Sport from a mobile phone.

The British brand has developed a communication system with the vehicle which resort to the phone application, and not only can close or open doors, it is also there to make it work without us being inside. Currently Land Rover has it at the prototype stage.

As you can watch in the video below, the functionality is there to help go through complicated situations on the ground, and being outside the vehicle would be the most appropriate to monitor the attack angles of gradients or slope changes.

It is also true that most Range Rover Sport buyers will not know what an unpaved road is throughout the life of their vehicle, so there are other interesting applications, as when we are blocked in in a car park. If there is no way to open the door, we go backwards with the application, and we can access.

Land Rover sets some boundaries

It seems that everything works as we imagine, being able to act on the speed and the direction of the vehicle. The first parameter is limited to 6.5 kilometers per hour, and the operating range is about three meters of the car.

In the video you can also see how there is a third feature that lets you change the travel direction in a lane -from standstill- which is usually performed with several awkward maneuvers, and the car performs autonomously.

We remind you that the British company is very active in terms of technology, and periodically it tells us updates that it is developing or has already implemented. We have some examples with the transparent front in vehicles, the pothole detection system, or the antennas integration to improve connectivity.
