The Center for Collaborative BSI-Toyota has developed a system that allows a robot to give orders only in thought in 125 milliseconds, and that applies to the field of medicine, for example wheelchairs, Toyota has reported today.
This is the technology of Brain-Computer Interface, known as BMI, which gives orders to machines and robots with just a press pensarlas.Según Toyota, the most significant of his team in terms of BMI is that it allows the execution of orders takes place after 125 milliseconds of thinking, compared to other similar technologies that require several seconds of reaction time.
The device has been developed by the center BSI-Toyota Collaboration (BTCC), created in 2007 between the independent Riken, Toyota Motor, Toyota They focus R & D Labs and Research Center Genesis.
The success rate of this new technology, intended use in the field of medicine and rehabilitation, especially in patients with a disability, is 95 percent, one of the highest in the world, according to the Toyota.Por time has been tested in wheelchairs, they can move forward or turn right and left with just a thought.
According to the communique, the device that is capable of adapting to the characteristics of each user of the wheelchair, receives and executes orders as quickly as almost "is not seen no delay between the order and movimiento.Las research this technology continues to ensure that machines are able to recognize and execute a larger number of orders and greater success.
In March this year, Japanese companies Honda and Shimadzu introduced their latest technology in this type of Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) with Asimo, the humanoid robot of the world most advanced user could pass through the mind to Asimo four different orders, move left, right, both feet or mouth - with a lag of more than one second.
