Mercedes invents a car that reads the driver's mind

• Then24

The German company has incorporated the system – fully functional but still in an experimental form – in its 'concept car' Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR. That car was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas 2020, but this mind-controlled version has been unveiled at IAA Mobility 2021. According to the German giant, visitors to the show will be able to test it themselves.

How does it work

Controlling vehicles with your mind – as if you were Clint Eastwood on Firefox – is one of the great dreams of science fiction. In fact, Mercedes' system now works like Eastwood's helmet in that movie where he had to steal a mind-controlled Russian experimental plane.
