In today's episode we look at a novel way to interact with your robot: through mind control. Raul Rojasreturns to our show to talk about how his AutoNOMOS teamused brain waves to give commands to their autonomous vehicle, MadeInGermany. We then talk to Geoffrey Mackeller, CTO of Emotiv Systems, the producer of the EEG headset used as an interface for this project.

These patterns are then used to send inputs to the drive-by-wire system of the MadeInGermany autonomous vehicle.

He gives us some insight into the sensing platform and the training process and also tells us about the different applications that can be approached through such an interface.

A couple of impressive demos can be found here and here.
