Researchers at AutoNOMOS Labs in Germany developed a system that uses the driver's brain waves to pilot the car. The future is here!!
They've previously built cars like these that could be controlled with an iPhone, but now they're taking it to the next level. Of course, its nothing like what you'd imagine but its close!
They built a brain wave control that required teaching a computer to read electromagnetic signals from a set of sensors worn by a test driver / thinker. Turning, accelerating, and braking. At the moment its not near being road worthy but it works.
The research team told IEEE Spectrum that the system could be paired with an autonomous taxi system; passengers could deliver directions simply by thinking them. Watch the video below:
