Nissan teaches its cars to predict drivers’ reactions
As it turns out, Japanese automobile giant Nissan has been undertaking some serious scientific research lately. The company demonstrated a series of innovative technologies at the CES Asia 2019, including driver aids called Invisible-to-Visible and Brain-to-Vehicle.
The Invisible-to-Visible feature could help the driver see what lies beyond the corner of a building or just past the road turn. The system uses sensors to collect data and then compares it with the data stored for the same area in the cloud database. This enables it to assess the environment and predict what to expect next. Nissan says it has recently tested the I2V tech on its Yokosuka testing ground.
The other feature, Brain-to-Vehicle, is advertised as being completely new and unique, with no other company on the market offering anything even remotely like it. The system reads brain signals of the driver to predict intentions and thus help him or her make faster actions. It is capable of self-learning and adjusting itself to the neural impulses of different drivers. All guests of the CES show could use a special simulator set to test the B2V in real conditions.
Aside from the above, the Japanese carmaker has unveiled a conceptual all-wheel drive EV it called the IMs.
