BCI for astronaut equipment control, ground communication

The China Astronaut Research and Training Center and Tianjin University are developing a BCI system to allow astronauts to control spacecraft equipment with their thoughts. Brain impulses will be translated into words, to operate instruments and  communicate with ground control.

The system will be tested by astronauts in space, and information is currently displayed at the International Simulation Expo in Beijing.
