I recall seeing a behind-the-scenes feature wherein it is explained that realistic action sequences involving moving cars are now possible with the use of a device which allows the car to be controlled by a stunt driver sitting on the roof. This makes it possible for scenes where the real actors rather than stunt doubles can be pictured (with mounted cameras) seemingly driving the car with great skill and abandon.
Is this a common technique nowadays? Does this device/setup have a name? IIRC, the clip I saw might have been from Skyfall.
An older question on this site covers other techniques besides this one which can be used to "film scenes with actors driving in a car".
