BrainDriver is the latest invention of Raul Rojas, an AI professor at the Freie Universitat Berlin. It represents a car driving system that allows the driver to control a vehicle using the power of mind.

It is worth mentioning that the technology makes use of electroencephalography, or EEG, which allows it to read the brain's neuro-signals and then convert the electric impulses into steering output.

Thus one can control the steering, brakes and more by simply using their thought. The EEG was developed by Emotiv, a firm based in San Francisco. It is worth mentioning that initially the firm developed the EEG for gaming but now it used to help read human emotions and convert them into actions in accordance with pre-programmed patterns.

So far the technology is in the trial phase. The testing of the new system took place at the Berlin Airport, reports Spectrum IEEE.
