Nissan brain-reading car tech can control driverless vehicles

Nissan is working on cars that can read your mind, promising brain-scanning technology that could make performance cars more responsive and autonomous cars more relaxing. The technology, dubbed Brain-to-Vehicle or B2V, is the handiwork of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility lab, the project within the Japanese automaker exploring next-generation transportation.
It uses a brain wave monitoring headset, which can track activity within the wearer’s brain. That activity is then fed through Nissan‘s autonomous systems, which then make inferences about what the driver is feeling or intending to do. It’ll be demonstrating the technology next week, at CES 2018.
