Nissan is committed to redefining how people drive, how vehicles move, and how they impact the world; their commitment to exploring the limitless boundaries of technology is evident in the automaker’s lineup of electric vehicles as well as its Nissan Intelligent Mobility initiative, which is dedicated to the evolution of autonomous driving technologies and possibilities.

Now, in its newest technological reveal, it seems Nissan is working on technology that will connect drivers and their cars like never before – through brain waves. According to Nissan, drivers will be able to control their vehicles just by thinking about it.

“The company’s Brain-to-Vehicle, or B2V, technology promises to speed up reaction times for drivers and will lead to cars that keep adapting to make driving more enjoyable,” according to Nissan.

Guests at the CES 2018 trade show, set for Jan. 9-12, in Las Vegas will get a glimpse of Nissan’s mind-controlled driving technology, which is designed to “predict” a driver’s movement such as hitting the gas and to “detect” the driver’s state of comfort and adjust accordingly.

“When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines. Yet B2V technology does the opposite, by using signals from their own brain to make the drive even more exciting and enjoyable,” said Nissan Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci. “Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are moving people to a better world by delivering more autonomy, more electrification and more connectivity.”

The research and application of Nissan’s B2V technology is an automotive first, according to Nissan.
