Jedi Mind Trick? Nissan Develops Brain-to-Vehicle Control

The brain-to-vehicle (B2V) technology predicts a driver's next actions with the goal of improving response times by fractions of a second.

With Brain-to-Vehicle, or B2V, technology, Nissan measures the driver's brain-wave activity and looks for any signs of them preparing to brake, steer, or accelerate.

The Japanese auto manufacturer will present its brain-to-vehicle, or B2V, technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week.

'When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines. Times improves slightly as the technology adapts more to the driver.

Anyone following the worldwide scene is following Pulisic, so he would bring in a massive USA crowd for whichever team gets him. Although the USMNT missed out on the World Cup, it highlights another aspect of signing Pulisic.

Second in line is detection, which summons artificial intelligence to detect and evaluate driver discomfort and change driving configurations or driving styles accordingly when operating in autonomous mode. Researcher Dr. Lucian Gheorghe, who heads the B2V research, says that the tech could also use augmented realty to adjust what the driver sees and create a more relaxing environment. That activity is then fed through Nissan's autonomous systems, which then make inferences about what the driver is feeling or intending to do. This neural interface, which improves reaction times by around 0.2 to 0.5 seconds, also manages vehicle comforts based on signals it takes from your brain.

Nissan's B2V vehicle feature is equipped with a brain-reading technology that can detect discomfort, for instance, with the use of a headgear.

It claims this development will redefine how people interact with their cars in the future.

While everyone else is focusing on innovations such as self-driving and electrical cars, Nissan is over here trying to get us to partially drive cars with our minds.

Nissan, part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, has been among the most aggressive automakers in pursuing electric and autonomous cars.

Nissan's B2V technology is the world's first system of its kind.

While the announcement focused on passenger vehicles, B2V technology could be helpful to boost safety in industries that use heavy machinery, including construction and manufacturing.

Lots of companies are working on cars that drive themselves using computers.
