Brainflight, A Project Researching Brain-Controlled Flight Using Electroencephalography (EEG) Caps

Brainflight

Brainflight is a project by scientists at the Technische Universität München researching brain-controlled flight using electroencephalography (EEG) caps to transmit commands. The project recently demonstrated the feasibility of such a setup in flight simulator tests.

Seven subjects took part in the flight simulator tests. They had varying levels of flight experience, including one person without any practical cockpit experience whatsoever. The accuracy with which the test subjects stayed on course by merely thinking commands would have sufficed, in part, to fulfill the requirements of a flying license test.
