By James L. WithersIt’s no secret that electric vehicles are poised to revolutionize the industry, and in a few short years, they will be everywhere.
And now, a company called Neurova has developed a model of electric vehicle steering that can simulate the steering behavior of a human’s brain.
The company unveiled its first model of the steering during its Google I/O 2017 keynote speech, and the results are pretty darn impressive.
It’s the first time the company has produced a human brain simulation of electric driving behavior, and it’s actually impressive in that it shows us just how much our brains can learn about the physics of driving and its effects on the vehicle.
First, let’s talk about Neurova’s first model.
The company created a brain simulation for the steering system of its Tesla Model S electric car.
In order to simulate the actual behavior of the human brain, the model uses two electrodes placed on the scalp.
Neurova used a chip that allows it to “read” the electrical signals of the brain in real time.
In the case of the Tesla Model X electric car, it uses a computer chip that can read brain activity to determine the steering action of the car’s electric motor.
In other words, it can simulate how the brain responds to the steering input of the vehicle’s electric motors, like the way that a human might respond to a hand on the wheel.
The model also includes two sensors to measure the electric vehicle’s acceleration and braking.
It also includes a gyroscope that can measure the vehicle position and orientation, as well as accelerometers that can tell if the vehicle is moving or if it’s accelerating.
Neurovas first model also measures the amount of electrical energy the car is using.
NeuroVa says that the electric car model will have a range of 10,000 kilometers (6,000 miles), which is a little short of the 20,000-mile range of Tesla’s Model X, but it’s still impressive when you consider the electric vehicles can travel more than 2,000 km (1,600 miles).
The company says that its neural simulation can take up to 10 hours to complete, which is pretty impressive considering the complexity of the systems that are required to achieve that.
In fact, the Neurova team has even managed to create a software model that can perform calculations in milliseconds for this type of simulation.
For example, in its first study, the company simulated how a human could react to a wheel on the ground when the vehicle was moving or accelerating.
In another study, it simulated the same thing using an iPhone simulator.
The team then simulated the reaction of a brain in a brain scanner, which was the standard method for neuro-imaging during research.
Neuroveas neural simulation took between two and five minutes to complete.
The final results of the first study were pretty impressive.
The final result of the Neurovas model of an electric car is not surprising given that neuroscientists are trying to understand how the brains of people can be trained to respond to electric vehicles.
The researchers are also trying to develop a system that can teach people to perform specific tasks, like navigating, using their minds.
This all sounds like an incredibly cool project, and Neurova hopes that this type (or kind) of system will help in the future in order to improve the safety of electric vehicles and in particular, the safety on highways.
But for now, the goal is to learn how the human nervous system responds to electric motors and how that compares to that of other vehicles.
This kind of model is still very early in the research, but Neurova says that it will continue to develop its model and it hopes to make it more accurate in the coming years.
And, if you want to learn more about Neurovea’s research, the firm has released a couple of videos in which it explains its research and some of its products.
