If you guys have to watch one video today, this has to be it. Hollywood stunt driver Mark Higgins in a Jaguar XJ takes on JaeHong Li, one of the world’s best drone pilots and his DJI Inspire Pro.
The main aim of the stunt was to showcase how future technology could influence car chase filming.
The challenge, which took place at the Zhuhai International Circuit in China, saw Higgins trying to shake off the drone through an industrialised zone containing shipping containers, wide tree-lined boulevards, pit garages and an underground car park.
Technology is making waves in both the car and drone industries – with the drone pilot using autonomous circling and 360-degree camera searching and Higgins in the XJ, benefitting from electric power assisted steering that improves responsiveness and feedback as well systems that use sensors and four on board cameras.
Check out the behind-the scenes video below, that was released by DJI shortly afterwards.
