The era for drones control is changing, now there are mind controls UDrones out there. So, for UDrones, users don’t need the hand to control. The hands no longer will be able to control them. Now control the drones with the mind. For that you need to have strong brain, not really, u just need some brain to control the UDrones.
The Chinese company EEGSmart has introduced the brain-machine interface (BMI) technology. And they will surprise the market with their UDrones mini-quad and UMind Lite headset.
Mind Control UDrones
The UDrones mini-quad is lightweight mini-quad-copter with 2-inch props, with plastic bumpers. It has an 8-megapixel, 1080p-capable camera. You can fly it using your mobile phone, but also has some smarts features with face tracking, subject tracking and gesture recognition. It flies for six or seven minutes on a battery, it streams video back to your phone in real time as long as you’re within Wi-Fi range.
The most amazing thing is the EEGSmart’s UMind Lite headset. There’s an EEG, or electroencephalography sensor, which measures electrical activity in the brain. There’s an EOG, or electro-oculography sensor that measures eye movements by monitoring the electrical potential between the front and back of the human eye. There’s an EMG, or electromyography sensor, that measures electrical activity in response to a nerve’s stimulation of muscles. It also has gyros and accelerometers, and patented gear built in to amplify signal and squash noise from the finicky brain and nerve sensors.
It charges via USB, like the drone itself, and sits over the ears across your forehead, just above your eyebrows. You can watch your mental focus activity summarized into a number in the UDrone app. For the control, the Yaw control is done by turning your head sideways then back again, and this happens in 45-degree increments. You blink twice to start the camera timer, and clench your jaw when it’s time to land.
