Nissan Going to Feature a Technology to Control Cars with Brains Signal


If you are still skeptical to the driverless technology of car then this news add some more questions in your skeptical mind. That’s because the Japanese auto giant Nissan has proclaimed it’s having success with developing a technology that will allow vehicles to be governed by construing signals from the driver’s brain, which really would revolutionize how we interact with our cars.
Nissan calls this technology Brain-to-Vehicle or B2V, and the claim is that the technology will speed up reaction times so vehicles can continually adapt to make driving more enjoyable than it is already. Nissan is going to be demonstrating the model of B2V at the upcoming  Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 9-12.
B2V is the recent development in Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the automaker’s ongoing vision of how vehicles will be driven, powered, and integrated into society in the future.
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. Yet B2V technology does the opposite, by using signals from their own brain to make the drive even more exciting and enjoyable. Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are moving people to a better world by delivering more autonomy, more electrification, and more connectivity.”
While driverless vehicle technology has been in development for some time, Nissan’s B2V technology is thought to be the first system of its kind in the world and an entirely a different technology from where many competitive manufacturers are concentrating their efforts.
The driver has to wear a device capable of detecting and measuring brain signal, which can then be interpreted by autonomous-drive systems. By anticipating intended movement, the onboard systems are able to take appropriate actions such as turning the steering wheel or slowing the car as much as 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than the driver can manage manually, while at the same time remaining mostly imperceptible.
It’s just a model that to be shown in the CES. However, the generalization of this technology in all the Nissan vehicles take a myriad of efforts and researchers. So now it’s only considered a great idea of Nissan.
