If you’re anything like us at Land Rover Gulf Coast, you take a special kind of joy in driving — whether it’s errands around Destin, heading off-road around Panama Beach City or the great American road trip. Of course, there’s also something to be said for incredible technologies, like a driverless vehicle. Land Rover is researching a new remote control technology that represents a stepping stone towards a fully autonomous vehicle. It could be used by the driver to maneuver out of difficult situations safely or even negotiate challenging terrain from outside the vehicle.

Don’t worry, it can’t exceed 4 mph in this mode.

The Future of Driving is Land Rover

It sounds scary at first, but now that you’ve seen it in action, isn’t there a certain convenience to being able to back a Range Rover Sport out of a tight parking spot by just taking out your phone? We’re still a long ways away from seeing this on the streets of Daphne, but we think it’s important for drivers to see what the future holds — and just how committed Land Rover is to that future!
