Realities of Brain-Computer Interfaces for the Automotive Industry: Pitfalls and Opportunities

We share a report on the use of EEG as a measurement modality for use in the automotive environment. PDF

Summary:

Brain-Computer Interfaces, especially those based on EEG as the primary sensing modality, has the potential to be a useful tool in the design and testing of next-generation human-machine interfaces as well as some other aspects of (semi) autonomous vehicles. However, due to several limitations posed by the very nature of the sensing modality, in particular, the hardware involved, we believe that the large-scale consumer adoption and usage of EEG based technology solutions remain highly unlikely if not impossible, at least in the next 5-10 years. We recommend considering a long-term research and development endeavor focused on niche EEG use-cases that don’t require consumer participation.
