All-new Land Rover Defender Will Get Remote Control That Will Allow Owners To Drive Their SUVs From Outside…
Land Rover is working on a new remote-control system that will let owners drive the Defender without being at the wheels of the SUV.
This tech is similar to Tesla’s self-driving “Summon” feature that allows the car to drive to to its owner. The remote control will allow owners of Defender to drive their SUV through tricky terrain with a lot more precision.
This tech is an extension of the Defender’s 3D Scout system which provides virtual image of the SUV from a distance.
For safety, a wearable Activity Key will be provided to verify the driver is nearby and in control of the SUV.
