  • China develops world’s first mind controlled car!

The car has been developed by researchers from the Nankai University in Tianjin and only uses brain power to drive.

China has come up with a mind controlled car. The car was developed by researchers at the Nankai University in Tianjin. Tianjin is a north-east port city of China. According to the researchers the car only uses brain power to drive.

It will be the first car developed in the country using brain power. The researchers spent two years working on the car. The car uses brain signal-reading equipment worn by a driver.

Through the equipment the driver can go forward, backwards and come to a stop only by brain power. Drivers can even perform tasks such as both lock and unlock the vehicle. All of these tasks are carried out by the drivers without moving their hands or feet at all. 

The equipment which the driver wears is composed of 16 sensors, Reuters reports. The sensors in the equipment capture EEG (electroencephalogram) signals.

The signals are caught from the driver’s brain and no other movement is required. The car also has a computer program that selects the relevant signals and translates them. The program and the equipment allow a driver complete control of the car without moving.

The lead researcher developing the car was Zhang Zhao. According to Zhao their computer processes brain signals to categorize and recognize drivers intentions. The translated commands are then given to the car. 

Associate Professor Duan Feng is from the department of Computer and Control Engineering. Feng was also involved and supervised the development of the car.

According to Feng the technology aims to better serve humans. The technology could also be used for combined brain controlled technology uses.
