Mind-Reading Car Concerned With Safety [Headlines]

Design & Architecture

Nissan's car uses brain-machine interface systems to detect which direction the driver intends to turn, and adjust speed and positioning as necessary.

One of the world’s largest motor manufacturers is working with scientists based in Switzerland to design a car that can read its driver’s mind and predict his or her next move.

The collaboration, between Nissan and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), is intended to balance the necessities of road safety with demands for personal transport.

Scientists at the EPFL have already developed brain-machine interface (BMI) systems that allow wheelchair users to manoeuvre their chairs by thought transference. Their next step will be finding a way to incorporate that technology into the way motorists interact with their cars. Guardian
