Well now you can steer the car without even moving the steering wheel with your hands.
At Freie University of Berlin, scientists have managed to do so by using EEG sensors to record brain activity which related to steering the car left,right,brake or accelerate. Scientists were able to do so as there’s a difference in the biological thinking pattern of all these activities. After recording the thoughts via sensors, scientists were able to connect the output to the computer that would drive the car.
The scientists first used the sensors for measuring brain waves in such a way that a person can move a virtual cube in different directions with the power of his or her thoughts. The test subject thinks of four situations that are associated with driving, for example, “turn left” or “accelerate.” In this way the person trained the computer to interpret bioelectrical wave patterns emitted from his or her brain and to link them to a command that could later be used to control the car. The computer scientists connected the measuring device with the steering, accelerator, and brakes of a computer-controlled vehicle, which made it possible for the subject to influence the movement of the car just using his or her thoughts.
