At the opening ceremony of the festival, drifting champion Vaughn Gittin jr. remotely drove the car through the Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset and drove it along the Goodwood Hillclimb track. The headset has a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone connected to Vodafone's superfast 5G network. The Lincoln MKZ was equipped with a Designated Driver remote control system.
The Lincoln MKZ, equipped with a Designated Driver remote control system, was piloted by Vaughn Gittin Jr. using a Samsung Gear VR headset and a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone that were connected to Vodafone's ultra-fast 5G network.
Yoon C. Lee, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics America said:
"This implementation is a confident step towards the application of remote presence technology using 5G, and the Goodwood Speed Festival has become an ideal test site for this. We intend to further expand our 5G product range."
Max Taylor, Customer Service Director at Vodafone UK said:
"Vodafone is proud to be at the forefront of 5G with Samsung and Designated Driver. The driver, who is located elsewhere in Goodwood, drives a stand-alone machine through VR glasses. The Vodafone 5G network provides up to 10 times faster data transfer rates than 4G and ultra-low signal latency, which is critical in situations where instant response is critical."
Vaughn Gittin Jr said:
"I never thought I'd ever take a chance on driving with a VR, phone and remote control system. Designated Driver, Samsung and Vodafone proved that this is possible when it comes to advanced technology."
