Steering a Car via Mind Control

Nissan just announced a new project that involves using brain waves to control your vehicle.  Dubbing the technology as “brain-to-vehicle” aka B2V, the Japanese automaker plans to unveil the prototype already well in the works this coming week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.  They intend to use brain-decoding technology to predict a driver's next move which can put that decision into play 0.2-0.5 seconds quicker than a human is physically capable of performing.  Although, the fraction of a second increase seems like nothing, it will actually improve safety by  helping speed up important reaction times.  Used primarily to help with braking, steering, and accelerating, it would be a unique “hands off, mind on” approach to controlling a vehicle.

The driver will wear a device (currently resembling a skullcap with protruding electrodes) that will allow the brain wave activity to be interpreted by an autonomous system.  The new device will perform and function in much the same way as the technology behind the electroencephalography, or EEG, which is essentially a method of monitoring electrical activity in the brain.  EEGs have been used for everything from something as inconsequential as videogames to things much more complex and important like medical testing.  This specific technology is quite obviously the first of its kind and although they will present it at the show, it won't be completely ready for at least another five years.

Critics are somewhat baffled by Nissan's announcement, mostly due to the fact that autonomous cars seem to be the wave of the future and something like this is almost archaic in the fact that it puts the power back into the hands (or in this case, the mind) of the driver.  Nissan, however, defends their brainchild by pointing out that although the majority of vehicles will be autonomous, manual driving should still be “a value of society.  In fact, people may choose to use the “brain-to-vehicle” technology as a way to seek joy, in it's most basic sense, allowing for a “joyride.”  In fact, the new tech will only be allowed in autonomous vehicles due to safety concerns, so in the event that the driver is uncomfortable, the car can be switched over to the autonomous driving system.  The autonomous system will also most likely be able to override the flagship tech if faced with a dangerous or unsafe driving situation.

Nissan also firmly believes the technology will actually enhance the autonomous driving experience.  Most people look at autonomous driving as an polarizing impersonal experience “where humans relinquish control to the machines,” as so eloquently stated by Nissan's Executive Vice President, Daniele Schillaci.  With the B2V technology, Nissan is actually bringing the person back into the driving process, allowing brain waves to be interpreted and driving style adjusted in an effort to provide the most enjoyable experience possible for the driver.  It really is an ingenious idea, the true mixing of man and machine to create an ideal driving environment.  A1 Auto Transport is excited to watch the coverage at the CES this coming week and see exactly how this technology plays out, and if it is as truly amazing as Nissan claims.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
