Nissan is working on a vehicle control system using the thoughts
different mechanisms operate using the power of thought is the long-standing dream of many engineers and scientists. Just imagine how it would be great to manipulate the computer and other complex instruments, while not applying to this no physical effort. Driving a car is also included in the list of such fantasies. Here are just some of the major automotive companies come to mind to realize such science fiction into reality? The first such project was "Brain-to-Vehicle" (B2V) Nissan Japanese company.
Connect the cord of the driver and his car - not an easy task. And no, as long as scientists working in R & D Nissan division, can not tell you with certainty that they have got to solve this challenge. However, they have for several years studied the brain activity of a plurality of drivers and created a very interesting algorithms to greatly improve the operation of artificial intelligence, in charge of the autonomous car ride. In the future, this may give rise to light the amazing symbiosis of the autopilot and a live person who will be able to complement each other.
B2V technology reads the driver's brain activity in real time and transmits this information to the onboard computer of the car. The driver in this case should be put on the head of a special helmet equipped with multiple sensors. By studying human brain activity, the autonomous car is able to predict the subsequent actions of the driver, to guess his wishes and depending on it adequately and, most importantly, timely respond to his thoughts. In this case, the word "timely" is equivalent to the fact that the automatic system is able to take over control of about 0, 2-0, 5 seconds earlier than how it will make the driver himself.
At the same time Nissan did not want to deprive a person because of his car. B2V allows you to make the intervention of an autonomous system in the course of a trip to a minimum. The main objective of the project is to create a technology in which a person will feel full control of his car, but in certain situations the system will be able to take control of their core of his system to bail out man and save his life from various dangers. The system is also able to set the level of human discomfort and adjust the movement of the car so that he felt more comfortable. Nissan will demonstrate this technology for the first time at the exhibition CES 2018, which starts on a recent day.
