Land Rover Autonomous Car Technology – drive your car using a smartphone!

Land Rover is researching a new remote control technology that represents a stepping stone towards the fully autonomous car.

One of the systems in development is a remote-control application that allows drivers to control their car from outside the vehicle, using a smartphone.

It could be used by the driver to manoeuvre 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 manoeuvring through 180 degrees, with the system taking over gear selection, steering, braking and acceleration.
