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.

BIOPAC provided TEL100C Remote Monitoring Systems and an MP150 System with AcqKnowledge software to record heart rate and GSR and the BHAPI hardware API to interface to other equipment.
