Tracking pilots’ brains using EEG / BCI

Announced on the science channel from Euronews, scientists from 3 different countries are working to better understand pilot’s brain functions and to prevent human errors.

“We are trying to better understand what can cause human error by using the same tools as neuroscientists, like electroencephalography (EEG), measuring the heart rate, the pupil diameter, eye tracking, which means tracking the pilot’s gaze at any given moment.”

This research have a great potential to be used during the pilot selection process and for monitoring the training techniques and cockpit designs. Watch the video pressing here.
