Just this week Nissan has teased an upcoming B2V (brain-to-vehicle) technology that will be able to interpret signals on your brain and in theory let you drive your vehicle. It sounds like a scene from a sci-fi movie, but as technology progresses sometimes fantasy becomes reality.
As Nissan had mentioned, this B2V technology will also enable its vehicles to read your thoughts using head gear worn by a driver. This head gear will enable the car and the driver to simultaneously send signals that can aid during autonomous driving.
The connected setup will also learn from your driving patterns when you operate the vehicle manually like what you do before you make a turn or push the accelerator. Artificial Intelligence will then weigh how each action is performed when you drive, and in turn use that to its own advantage when it is driving by itself.
“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,” said Nissan Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci. “Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are moving people to a better world by delivering more autonomy, more electrification and more connectivity.”
At CES 2018 next in Las Vegas Nissan will be showcasing the technology using simulators that you can try at the event.
