Nissan unveiled their newest AI Brain to Vehicle Technology!
The twenty-first century is the biggest evolution in technology that man has seen so far like Mercedes-Benz DIGITAL LIGHT, Advanced Urban Vehicle Technology and a lot more is yet to come. Another proof from the tech world is in the automotive world, thanks to Nissan which build Brain to Vehicle Technology that will enhance the whole concept of driving experience to a brand new level that no one has even imagine it will ever exist.
Their future innovation is called Brain To Vehicle Technology, in theory will deliver more excitement and driving pleasure by detecting, analyzing and responding to diver’s brainwaves in real-time, so how do this work?
Nissan’s Brain To Vehicle technology is the result of the research they made on human brain using decoding technology to predict the driver’s action and detect the discomfort.
The future benefits of this technology are made for two main reasons:
- To enhance the driver performance in addition to reach their full driving potential while driving the vehicle and controlling the steering wheel.
- To provide a real-time personalization of autonomous drive mode with other functions.
The detailed explanation of how this technology works
Predict – Brain To Vehicle Technology
When the driver actually drives the car in manual mode. by identifying the signs that the driver’s brain is about to initiate a movement, such as turning the steering wheel or pushing the accelerator pedal, driver assist technologies can begin the action as fast as the brain converts the information. In addition this will improve the security of the driver and the passengers as the comfort.
Like if driving on some bumpy road or some mountain terrain and there are lots of tight corners, it can easily keep their car under control therefore helping them to drive smoother and better with lot more confidence. The Brain to Vehicle Technology system even enables highly skilled drivers to outperform their usual high skills on such conditions.
Detect – Brain To Vehicle Technology
While driving in autonomous driving mode, the brain will detect and evaluate the driver’s discomfort, the artificial intelligence (machine, technology) can alter the driving configuration or driving style to make the driver feel relaxed with more confident.
If the driver prefers to drive the car in the fastest lane at highway after a few turns, the autonomous drive system will pick up this pattern give an information from the brain into the machine, and drive in a way that aligns with his expectations, while still keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
Nissan claim that Brain To Vehicle technology provides the world’s first ever made system for real-time detection and analysis of brain activity relating to driving.What is actually use an activity in advance of intentional movement (aka steering), it knows as movement-related cortical potential (MRCP), and activity that reveals the variance between what the driver expects, known as error-related potentials (ErrP).
This brain wave activity is measured using a skullcap worn by the driver and analyzed and interpreted for immediate implementation by onboard autonomous systems. By anticipating intense movement, systems can engage (turning the steering wheel or slowing the car) 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than the average human response time.
