TECHNOLOGY that allows cars to be driven using brain waves has been showcased in Las Vegas.
Japanese car maker Nissan, that has a factory in Barcelona and Avila, is currently developing ‘brain-to-vehicle technology’ and premiered the concept at the Consumer Electronics Show.
A head device monitors brain waves to predict when a driver is about to steer, accelerate or brake, then provides the assistance at between 0.2 and 0.5 seconds quicker than a human driver.
According to Nissan, the technology could be fitted within five to ten years.
“When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines,” said Nissan vice president Daniele Schillaci.
