Two different groups of researchers from the University of Texas at San Antonio have combined forces to develop drones that can be controlled by brain signals. The team plans to use high-performance electroencephalogram (EEG) systems to measure brain waves noninvasively, and then use the data to build computer algorithms to convert brain signals to drone commands.
The research team received funding from the Office of the Secretary of Defense and Department of Defense to be able to learn how this research could support drone operations for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions. The research could also lead to advancements in robot-human interaction especially in smart home applications.
