Mind-controlled robots: the factories of the future?

Mind-controlled robots

The Financial Times recently published an incredible video showing a futuristic brain-computer interface developed by Altran, powered by our EMOTIV EPOC+ EEG. The demonstration applies neural inputs in a manufacturing setting, to control factory robots, with a view to ultimately transform businesses and the way people work.


The introduction of neurotechnology in manufacturing presents a new possibility in the way operators interact with their machines, using their minds over their hands. This aims to contribute towards increasing safety, improved ability to monitor and guide robots, and increase overall productivity on the floor.
