Nissan’s future cars may read your brain to prevent accidents
Nissan has developed new technology that allows vehicles to read the brain activity of drivers, and initiate movement in response.
Billed as the first system of its kind in the world, the technology interprets brain signals, allowing the vehicle to predict the driver’s actions in advance, and mitigate to any discomfort experienced.
The driver would have to wear a device that measures brain-wave activity, so that it can be decoded and analysed by the B2V system.
The B2V technology is the latest development from Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a sector of the company dedicated to the future of cars.
Additional features include control of the vehicle’s interior environment. It could also use augmented reality to adjust what the driver sees through their windscreen.
The new technology will be demonstrated from 9 to 12 January at CES 2018.
