Nissan’s Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology interprets signals from driver’s brain; could play major role in Nissan Intelligent Mobility
Nissan is ready to showcase its Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This technology comes as part of the brand’s Intelligent Mobility solutions and it could play major role in future self-driving smart Nissan vehicles. This B2V technology connects driver’s brain with the vehicle’s computer and speed up the reaction time.
As the Japanese auto manufacturer claims, this technology will help the vehicle to continuously adapt to various situations in an attempt to make the driving experience more enjoyable. While the auto major is ready to demonstrate this tech at the CES 2018, it is not sure when the company will introduce B2V in its vehicles meant for the market.
So far, this Brain-to-Vehicle technology will redefine the future driving. Nissan says, this technology will help the car’s system to react around 0.5 seconds faster than the driver by anticipating his or her intended movement. Therefore the actions like accelerating, decelerating, steering movements will be slightly faster. As the brand claims, it has been working on brain decoding technology for quite some time and B2V comes as a result of that.
The Brain-to-Vehicle technology relies on two stages that are prediction and detection. In the prediction stage, in-car system will grab signals from the driver’s brain and will call the vehicle’s driver assistance systems into action. In the detection phase, B2V will summon the vehicle’s artificial intelligence to detect and evaluate driver’s mood, movements and reactions to learn and act accordingly in autonomous mode.
As the world of automobiles is moving towards smarter technologies, Nissan is aiming to take a leading role in the process and the brand has initiated its drive called Nissan Intelligent Mobility. Under this initiative, Nissan is developing not only self-driving technology but several other innovative automotive technologies.
The Japanese company is also working on greener powertrain solutions that will be available in its future vehicle fleet. Expect the technology like B2V to be available in its vehicles in the next decade.
