EEG device enables thought controlled car

Duan Feng of Nankai University, in collaboration with Great Wall Motor, has developed a car that can be controlled with the brain.  A 16 sensor EEG device allows a driver to move the car forward and backward, stop, and lock and unlock the vehicle. At this point, fully operating the car with thoughts is not possible.

According to researcher Zhang Zhao, the goal is to create a way for the disabled to drive, and aid healthy people with a more “intellectualized driving mode.”
