nissan's brain to vehicle technology promises to speed up reaction times for drivers

japanese multinational automobile manufacturer nissan has unveiled their latest research – the brain to vehicle, or B2V technology that promises cars that learn from the driver. to do so, the technology enables vehicles to interpret signals from the driver’s brain, redefining how people interact with their cars. the company says that this will lead cars to keep adapting to create more enjoyable driving experiences for the drivers.

 

nissan will be presenting the brain to vehicle technology using a driving simulator to demonstrate some elements of the technology at CES 2018 in las vegas.

‘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.’

the brain to vehicle technology is possible thanks to a brain decoding technology that predicts the driver’s actions and is able to detect discomfort. other possible applications includes adjusting the vehicle’s internal environment, using augmented reality to enhance what the driver sees. nissan has created a device to measure the driver’s brain waves and to be analyzed by an autonomous system.
