Remote Controlled Real-Life Auto Racing Using a Smartphone
By Robotics Trends Staff - Filed Mar 30, 2012
Using the Sim Reckless Racing 2 and a Sony Xperia smartphone, Dr. James Brighton, a remote control engineer at UK’s Cranfield University has rigged a pair of MG F Roadsters to race around a dirt track, connecting the game’s smartphone controls to actual cars.

This project culminated as a result of a program designed by Sony to push the limits of mobile technology, called Xperia Studio.  Sony partners with artists, intellectuals, and boat-rockers from around the world, providing them with a phone and a means to document their work.
