Nissan working on mind-reading cars

Nissan working on mind-reading cars

The Yokohama-based company revealed research on Wednesday into Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology, which connects how we think and drive - and how cars can interpret these signals.

In a human-driven auto, the so-called brain-to-vehicle technology could shorten reaction times.

Essentially, this "brain connectivity" research will be used as part of Nissan's brain decoding technology to predict a driver's actions and detect discomfort.

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.

"The potential applications of the technology are incredible", helping motorists relax more while driving, while also improving vehicle safety, said Dr. Lucian Gheorghe, senior innovation researcher at the Nissan Research Center in Japan.

Nissan is attempting to humanise autonomous driving technology by implementing Brain-to-Vehicle technology into its fleet. By anticipating intended movement, the systems can take actions - such as turning the steering wheel or slowing the vehicle - 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than the driver, while remaining largely imperceptible.

B2V is the latest 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.

While you would rightly be sceptical about the promises being made here, Nissan is serious in its Kubrickian quest to delve into the workings of our brains. Nissan will be showing off the new B2V technology at CES 2018.

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. Most manufacturers use pictures of people reading the newspaper or scrolling through their phone, in cabins with no steering wheel or pedals, whenever a new self-driving concept is released. 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.

Nissan would probably need some sort of less intrusive version if the technology was be practical for the market. An AI system will then use the information to predict what you'll be doing -whether you'll brake or turn and then pre-emptively initiating the action 0.2 to 0.5 seconds before reacting.
