Researchers from Berlin have developed new technology which could lead to cars being controlled by the mind.

With technology advancing all the time and new applications being introduced, this system has been adapted from a headset currently used as a gaming tool.

Brain activity is recorded using electroencephalography (EEG) sensor-equipped headsets. Each movement of the vehicle or object is corresponded with different activity patterns.

A Volkswagen Passat has been modified and has cameras set up to allow a 360 degree view in order for tests to be carried out.

This system is not roadworthy but could lead to further research and a design that transforms our driving experience.
