Mind Controlled Car uses BIOPAC Telemetry
Mind Controlled Car—the premier episode of the new Discovery Channel series “Prototype This!”—used BIOPAC equipment to measure a driver’s heart rate and GSR as indicators of mental state as part of a feedback system that turns the car off when a driver reaches “road rage.”
The series features a team of expert engineers who work each week to come up with one-of-a-kind prototypes of tomorrow for people to experience today.
In the premier episode, the guys adapt an advanced biofeedback system that lets them use mind control to drive a car and monitors the “anger” level of the driver to limit the driver's ability to control the car in a dangerous fashion.
