Nissan reveals new brain-to-vehicle technology that will

Nissan is researching technology that uses brainwave-sensors to detect what a driver intends to do in the next fraction of a second or, in a self-driving auto, what he expects the vehicle to do.

Nissan will show off aspects of the tech using a driving simulator at CES, so attendees will get a chance to see what this cold look like in practice.

"When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines", Nissan executive president Daniele Schillaci said.

M - Nissan says it has new technology that lets you exert The Force on your vehicle like a real Jedi.

Essentially, this "brain connectivity" research will be used as part of Nissan's brain decoding technology to predict a driver's actions and detect discomfort.

It can also detect if you are under strain or stress and change the driving style when in autonomous mode.

Dr Lucian Gheorghe, senior innovation researcher at the Nissan Research Centre in Japan said the brain-to-vehicle tech could have other auto applications such as adjusting the interior environment to suite the driver.

Political experts say with her name recognition and fundraising ability, Bachmann would be a formidable Republican opponent. That's what I've done as Lieutenant Governor and that's what I intend to do in Washington , D.C", said Smith .

"The potential applications of the technology are incredible", added Lucian Gheorghe, senior innovation researcher at the Nissan Research Centre in Japan. This cap measures brain activity and brain waves, which is analyzed in real-time by a vehicle's autonomous system. It will be a AI based system that learns from your brain waves patterns and in the future can predict how the auto should react to your intentions.

Don't expect to see the Brain-to-Vehicle, or B2V, technology show up as an option in the latest Nissan sedans and SUVs. Reaction times - such as turning the steering wheel or slowing the vehicle - can see a 0.2 to 0.5 second increase as a result of this technology.

The world first system can perform actions such as initiating steering or acceleration manoeuvres up to half a second before the driver could physically react to the thought.

Beyond such safety effects, Nissan wants to use the tech to more closely integrate the driver with autonomous vehicle functions, re-connecting we humans with our cars once steering wheels and pedals have been done away with.

The concept of a connected auto may get a new meaning.

Nissan would probably need some sort of less intrusive version if the technology was be practical for the market.
