Nissan Prepares Cars to Read Your Brain Waves

Nissan Prepares Cars to Read Your Brain Waves

A volunteer uses the Nissan B2V technology to test how it works will driving on a simulator.

Nissan's Executive Vice President, Daniele Schillaci, explains, "When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines". The driver assist technology then can begin the action more quickly, generally up to half a second faster than the driver.

The B2V interface has a goal of allowing the decoding technology to predict a driver's actions and detect discomfort.

Dr Lucian Gheorghe, senior innovation researcher at the Nissan Research Centre in Japan said the brain-to-vehicle tech could have other auto applications such as adjusting the interior environment to suite the driver.

Driver discomfort would also be monitored and managed by the system, using artificial intelligence.

B2V is the latest development in the company's move to transform how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. Once a driver puts on a device that measures brain wave activity, the system can detect when the driver is about to initiate a movement.

The automaker says that, by anticipating such movements, the vehicle can shave anything from 0.2 to 0.5 seconds off the usual, unassisted reaction time.

There are a number of challenges left to resolve before a vehicle can accurately predict what you're thinking - and know how to translate that into action. Nissan Researchers are also looking at the reverse process, and use brain waves when the auto does things the driver did not expect or did not intend to do something and use notification systems to alert the driver.

Nissan, part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, has been among the most aggressive automakers in pursuing electric and autonomous cars. Nissan hopes to have some version of Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) ready for real-world use in th next five to 10 years, Nissan spokesman Nicholas Maxfield said.

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

Nissan will demonstrate the technology at CES 2018, the announcement said.

Nissan is looking to soon roll out a smart vehicle that can read, interpret, and act on human thoughts - all for safe and pleasurable driving experience.
