Here's what the researchers say about the project, which they call the BrainDriver:
After testing iPhone, iPad and an eye-tracking device as possible user interfaces to maneuver our research car, named "MadeInGermany," we now also
use Brain Power. The "BrainDriver" application is of course a demonstration and not roadworthy yet, but in the long run human-machine interfaces
like this could bear huge potential in combination with autonomous driving.
To road test their brain-controlled car, the Germans headed out to the former airport in Berlin Tempelhof. The video below shows a driver
thought-controlling the car, Yoda-style. "Don't try this at home," the narration says, only half-jokingly.
