New Land Rover Defender can be controlled remotelySeptember 27, 2019
The existing 3D Scout system can be used for automatic driving modes.
The British automaker is working on a remote control system for its new Defender, which will allow you to control the car outside. The system is designed for off-road use, allowing owners to overcome obstacles and bottlenecks with greater accuracy than if they were inside the car.
“We have come to understand how to do this, and we also launched prototypes. A car is able to do this in terms of its architecture, ”said Stuart Frith, chief product engineer.
This technology will complement one of Defender’s 3D systems, which will provide a virtual image of the car from a distance and require a key to make sure that the driver is nearby and controls the car.
While the new Defender has improved traction systems, sophisticated software and better visibility with cameras and other sensors, Frit said that nothing can replace the human eye, which is able to assess the situation from the outside.
“If you are in a predicament alone, you can still get out of the car and independently control what is happening,” he commented.
Land Rover is also considering providing owners of the online video stream through the cloud using the Defender EVA 2.0 electrical architecture and online package.
