Quadcopter, or we know him as a regular drone controlled using a remote control from a distance. But what if the ‘toy’ that we can control with our mind? Not just one, even we can control several drones at once by just thinking about it. Why not use the remote control, of course is because the remote control can only be used to control only one drone. Unlike the human brain has the ability to control multiple things at once in a single time. At least not as that is what is being investigated by a group of scientists. They fit a helmet equipped with a control electrode cable 128. Overall electrode wires were connected to a computer controlling the drones, as well as to record the brain activity of the subjects during the research process.
Director of the Laboratory of Humanoid Robot and Control explained that the purpose of their study was to map the passwords of brain activity as long as he controls the robot. They are trying to compare the movement of drones controlled by brain activity recorded by the computer. To control the drone, the controller watching a screen, thinking and visualizing the movement of drones. In addition to record brain activity, the movement of the drone also recorded by the computer system.
Over the past two to three decades has done many studies of brain-machine interface is a single, in which you only control one machine that makes compelled to explore this concept of multi-control. A unique feature of this study is that every individual human brain has a different character. It makes Artemiadis should always perform a calibration if it is to toggle the subject of research. Even he had to do it every day because it signals the brain is always changing from day to day.
Looking ahead research is to use some of the subjects people to control multiple robots at once. He plans to continue to develop research in order to get a mature concept. It is not impossible ideals to make a bunch of robots controlled together can be used for a search and rescue mission.
