The technology has been tested in a flight simulator
Control is by means of a cap that picks up brain impulses
The brain impulses are run through an algorithm to separate the control commands
The technology allows pilots to control an aircraft with their mind
Flying is most definitely a hands-on (and feet-on) job, but it may not always be that way. Turning science fiction into fact, researchers at the Institute for Flight System Dynamics of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the TU Berlin are developing a way for pilots to control aircraft with their minds alone. According to the team, they have not only demonstrated that it’s possible, but that it can be done with a surprising degree of accuracy.
