Nissan cars will read the driver’s mind in the future

The Japanese automaker is collaborating with Swiss researchers to build a car that will interpret the driver’s thoughts.

Nissan announced that it would be collaborating with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland (EPFL) on a car that could predict its driver’s intentions.

The human driver will continue to be the one that maintains the vehicle’s control. Thus, the car will read the driver’s thoughts in order to prepare itself for the next maneuver. For example, when the driver will prepare to turn right, the car will adopt the speed and position necessary to perform this action.

Professor José del R. Millán, leading the project, said: “The idea is to blend driver and vehicle intelligence together in such a way that eliminates conflicts between them, leading to a safer motoring environment.”

This summer, the scientists at EPFL teamed up with a researcher from Nissan, Lucian Gheorghe, originally from Romania but who has spent the last 14 years of his life in Japan . Lucian joined Nissan’s Mobility Research Center after graduating in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from Kobe University.

Lucian was responsible for researching Driver Assist systems and searching for new methods of adapting brain science programs into automobile development.

“Brain wave analysis has helped me understand driver burden in order to reduce driver stress. During our collaboration with EPFL, I believe we will not only be able to contribute to the scientific community but we will also find engineering solutions that will bring us close to providing easy access to personal mobility for everyone,” he said.
