  • INTRODUCTION
    Human-Machine interface – earliest known forms of interactions with machines in manufacturing
    Brain–Machine Interface (BMI) is a technology that creates a direct communication pathway between the brain and an external device. It allows the control of computers or the external device with the regulation of brain activity alone.
    It started with the discovery of the electrical activity of human brain and the development of Electroencephalography (EEG) – Recording of electrical activities along the scalp.
    It is widely used in medical science for the correction of damaged hearing, sight and movement (spinal cord injury).
  • 7. NISSAN/EPFL Project
    Combines EPFL advances in wheelchair systems and Nissan’s advance safety systems for cars such as Intelligent CruiseControl, Distance Control Assist and Moving Object Detection
  • 8. General overview
    • Most widely known Computer Human interface is in the keyboard and the mouse
    • 9. Other areas include virtual world, voice recognition, handwriting recognition as well as gesture recognition to give new paradigm of computing
    • 10. Advances in science and technology is now enabling the direct interface between the brain and the computer
    • 11. Application into the fields other than medical science to enhance human experience and comfort
  • Summary of main points
    Safer driving environment: Predicts the drivers next move and prepares the car for anticipated actions as well as eliminating conflicts between car motion and driver action
    Slow speed, braking, turning
    Improved driving Experience: Combination of driver and vehicle intelligence enhances the driving experience
    Augments the automatic gearbox driving experience
    Reduced Driver Stress: Brainwave analysis is helping researchers understand the burden of driving. The Nissan/EPFL system reduces the stress on the driver.
    Reduces stressful experiences while driving
  • 12. critique
    • Levels of concentration required is very high
    • 13. Not good for people with multiple thoughts e.g. Matatu drivers, drunk drivers etc
    • 14. Best achieved accuracy of BMI is 90%
    • 15. Information transfer rates for BCI’s still very low (5 to 25bits per minute)
  • conclusions
    Scientific discoveries such as that of EEG and technological advancement in the field of artificial intelligence has greatly contributed in the medical field for correction of certain disorders
    These achievements are now being used to extend the application of BMI into smart motoring by conceiving of a hands free driving.
