The New Nissan Can Read Brain Waves

The new technology, which Nissan calls brain-to-vehicle or B2V, is the latest addition to the Japanese brand's Intelligent Mobility program that it says will change how its cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.

While the technology hasn't been implemented in any of Nissan's cars yet, it's early capabilities will be introduced to the world at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this weekend. "Yet B2V technology does the opposite, by using signals from their own brain to make the drive even more exciting and enjoyable", said executive vice president of Nissan, Daniele Schillaci.

This Jetson's style technology leverages a specific headset on the driver that tracks certain happenings in parts of the driver's brain.

It is also being championed as a means to detect and evaluate how driver is feeling and change the driving configuration to make them more comfortable both during manual and autonomous driving.

The system can also be used to adjust the vehicle's internal environment. "Driving pleasure is something as humans we should not lose", Lucian Gheorghe, a senior innovation researcher at Nissan, said in an interview. The brakes could then be applied immediately, even before the driver's foot has touched the brake pedal.

Talking about the specifications of the Galaxy A8+(2018) smartphone, the phone runs on Samsung Exynos 7885 octa-core processor . With this confirmation, the new flagships will be successors to the company's 2017 flagships the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

It claims this development will redefine how people interact with their cars in the future.

RotM Nissan reckons it has developed technology that will allow you to control cars of the future with your brainwaves.

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, by expecting intended movement.

Bizarrely, Nissan also claims its technology could extend to altering what passengers actually see when sat in the auto. 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. At CES, Nissan will be demonstrating some elements of the new system using a driving simulator, and someone will be on hand to answer questions, of which there will probably be many.

Nissan is looking to soon roll out a smart vehicle that can read, interpret, and act on human thoughts - all for safe and pleasurable driving experience.
