Driverless cars have just been taken to a whole new level.

Chinese researchers appear to have successfully driven a car using nothing but their minds.


In a series of images released by a Chinese photo agency, a team at Nankai University are seen to be using a headset that monitors electrical activity in the brain, to brake, reverse, start, lock and unlock the car.


The electroencephalo-graph controlled the car, by reading the driver's mind and transferring the information to a computer processor connected to a electrical unit within the car.

A report from state-controlled Chinese media, CCTV claim that the device "does not harm the human body."

Associate professor Duan Feng, from the university's College of Computer and Control Engineering, who led the research told CCTV:

"We connect our equipment with CAN (Controller Area Network) of the car for communication, which is a breakthrough because in the past the human brain signal can only control stuffs in visual environment or a simple thing like a wheelchair.

Now we can do it on an entire car, and we are the first in China.

Mind-controlled Cars Tested In China
It's a Joke !!! Haha...Mind Reader/Controlled Devices are not real ;)
Results are manipulated simply coz it's Chinese !
Clearly they should test in a real traffic congestion to prove the credentials !

Clearly this is fluke & no independent panel has checked this ! :huh :huh

Yes, for the last 4 years ;

This is not suitable for real life scenarios :no:no

BrainDriver: A Mind Controlled Car - IEEE Spectrum

May be not suitable in 2015 but who knows what will happen in 2115.

Wright brothers never thought that 850 passengers can fly in a Jumbo jet within 100 years of their first human flight while discovering their first prototype in 1903. :k

So we should appreciate their effort :clap
