Nissan claims to have developed a car that can read its driver’s mind.
Software adapted from the medical profession is translating a driver’s thoughts into action to improve vehicle responsiveness. The technology was to have been unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.
The software monitors brain wave activity to anticipate intended movement, be that turning the steering wheel or hitting the brakes. Nissan says the system can react between 0.2-0.5 second faster than the driver without being considered intrusive.
The B2V technology is meant to make driving more enjoyable in a semi-autonomous world by speeding up reaction times and having vehicles that constantly adapt to their owner’s driving style.
