Trimble and Neurable have partnered to explore the use of brain-computer interfaces for the transportation and AEC industries. The two companies share a vision of using neurotechnology to support digital transformation by providing a bi-directional feedback loop, driving increased safety and productivity.
It is the closest thing I’ve ever experienced in VR to having the technology read my mind...
Trimble TRMB recently collaborated with Neurable, in a bid to bolster transportation, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries.
Neurable works to read activity with a speed and accuracy that is not usually possible.
Neurable has made a lot of improvements in a short period of time
CEO Alcaide, who has a PhD in neuroscience, tells Spectrum that his tech doesn’t use the EEG brainwave patterns associated with focused concentration or relaxation as control signals. Those signals are used by a few BCI devices already on the market, such as the Muse brain-sensing headband designed to improve meditation and to play simple real-world games. Instead Neurable’s software registers event-related potentials, more specific signals that occur when the brain responds to a stimuli, which allows for an intention-based interaction method.
I was frankly in shock — I really didn’t expect it to work as well as it did.
