A new kind of innovation has come to light which allows one to monitor the brain waves of pilots to see if they are paying enough attention to the job in hand, that is flying the plane. Developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego the brain scanning technology was incorporated into a simple helmet for the purpose of reading brain waves by installing a compact EEG brain scanning technology. To output the reading of stats after the brain waves are carefully scanned the next step is to send the data via Bluetooth technology to a tablet device.
This very data helps the analysts to determine which part of the brain is active when the pilot is maneuvering the plane. Now the comparison of the brain waves when the pilot is fully active and when he/she is a bit lethargic is clearly indicated by the brain wave moment in certain areas of the brain. For now the technology can only monitor brain waves and not read mind thoughts as that technology is still a long way off as of now.
There are other implications of this technology too where it can be used for deep insight into brain related problems such as autism, epilepsy, paralysis and fatigue. Have a look at the video below of the technology in action and do tell us in the comments section about your views on its more implications.
