Nissan Shows Brain-to-Vehicle Technology

Share

Nissan has been working on Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology, which enables a vehicle to interpret signals from the driver's brain, with the aim to speed up reaction times. If you're being ferried around in an autonomous vehicle, Nissan says, the sensors will allow the auto to detect any discomfort and adjust its driving style to create a more pleasant riding experience.

The Japanese carmaker intends to showcase this new technology in time for the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which kicks off January 9. Nissan calls it Brain-to-Vehicle, or B2V technology.

The B2V interface has a goal of allowing the decoding technology to predict a driver's actions and detect discomfort.

It can foresee upcoming movements such as adjustments to steering, the throttle or brakes, and enforce them using driver assist technology between 0.2sec and 0.5sec quicker than the human driver can. Using this, it would be able to change the car's driving style when in autonomous mode. That might sound a bit creepy, but Nissan says its so-called B2V technology offers benefits for both manual and autonomous driving.

The system is also said to detect the driver's mood and alter the driving configuration in a moment, to suit the driver's needs. B2V can respond to maneuvers like braking and turning between 0.2 seconds and 0.5 seconds faster than the driver, making a vehicle feel more responsive and sportier. The system lets your brain communicate with your vehicle and control it to help pursue your mission. Nissan Researchers are also looking at the reverse process, and use brain waves when the vehicle does things the driver did not expect or did not intend to do something and use notification systems to alert the driver.

Nissan is being vague about details of the B2V system so far, other than calling it a component of their Intelligent Mobility strategy. "Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are moving people to a better world by delivering more autonomy, more electrification and more connectivity", said Daniele Schillaci, Nissan executive vice president.

It'll be demonstrating the technology next week, at CES 2018. The disconnect is so great that a driver doesn't even need to touch the wheel while driving on the highway.

Anticipating things like braking, applying the accelerator, or anticipating turns, Nissan could develop great advanced driver assistance (ADAS) features, or it could help bridge the gap between semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles more safely.
