I remmeber showing that video to one of my teachers in school the other day. Really cool, but can be dangerous too.

I have spend long time on designing a safe system.

Like the brakes. The brake pedal is being controlled by 2 robotic servos. This way you always have a backup incase 1 servo doesnt work anymore

2nd. Failsafe. Incase of problems with range, battery, panic... Hit the power switch, and the failsafe activate the brake servos.

As 2nd failsafe, i use 2 receivers. The 2nd one is to activate the failsafe incase receiver 1 doesnt function anymore.

So 2 brakes, 2 receivers, 2 failsafes.

Soon i will upload another rc clip of kitt. Currently modding the brake servos.

But system will come for sale. So who knows, all remotely driving replicas in the future.

Well this is all good and everything, but I'm eyeing Tesla real good right now...

This has nothing to do with tesla or its systems. This is not a autonomous car but a RC car.
