Nissan researching “Brain-to-Vehicle” technology; decoding driver motor cortex activity in real-time

By mmillikin Nissan is researching technology that will enable vehicles to interpret signals from the driver’s brain, redefining how people interact with their cars. The company’s Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology promises to speed up reaction times for drivers and will lead to cars that keep adapting.

Nissan’s B2V technology is the first system of its kind. The driver wears a device that measures brain wave activity, which is then analyzed by autonomous systems. By anticipating intended movement, the systems can take actions—such as turning the steering wheel or slowing the car— 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than the driver, while remaining largely imperceptible.
