Imagine yourself controlling your car with your smartphone just like Pierce Brosnan driving a BMW with his smartphone to escape bad guys, well this can soon be a reality with Range Rover Sport controlled by a Smartphone App. As demonstrated by Jaguar in the video shared below, the Remote Control Range Rover Sport research vehicle is being driven by the driver from outside the car via his smartphone.
The smartphone app includes control of steering, accelerator and brakes as well as changing from high and low range. This would allow the driver to walk alongside the car, at a maximum speed of 4mph, to manoeuvre their car out of challenging situations safely, or even to negotiate difficult off-road terrain. The smartphone app also comes in handy to reverse the car out of a parking space if someone has parked too close for them to open the door. Jaguar is doing some excellent research work in bringing technology to it's cars for tackling real life issue like the Transparent Car Technology Demonstrated earlier.
