Nissan To Stun The Market With Mind Reading Cars

Car giant, Nissan has hinted that it would soon produce cars that will read the minds of drivers and speed up vehicle reaction.

The first details of research into what it is calling Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology, which uses brainwave-reading tech to spot signals related to movement–such as turning the wheel or pressing a pedal– has therefore been announced by the Japanese firm.

Nissan said being able to predict such events and applying it to driver assistance tools will speed up reaction times and improve manual driving.

Nissan Executive Vice-President Daniele Schillaci said: “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.”

The technology is therefore reported to use a special headset worn by the driver to monitor brain signs, and can also be used if and when a car is in autonomous mode –-changing in-car comfort settings–if it senses discomfort.

The firm added that its technology has the ability to enable a car to take action between 0.2 and 0.5 seconds faster once it detects intended movement from the driver.
