Driving a car with the brain signal of eyes movement

Becoming Superhuman thanks to Dr Jordan Nguyen

In this series, Biomedical engineer Dr Jordan Nguyen and and his engineering interns try to make a boy’s wildest dreams come true with cutting-edge technology. He’s promised 13 year-old Riley Saban he will invent a device to help Riley achieve the impossible… to drive a car using the movement of his eyes..

Biomedical engineer Dr Jordan Ngyen and his team take on a new challenge in the second of ABC TV’s Catalyst two part series Becoming Superhuman, to help Riley Saban achieve his dream to drive a car. Riley suffers from cerebral palsy, which is a condition that affects body movement and muscle coordination. In the first of the series Dr Jordan invented a prototype technology to enable his friend to control basic functions such as turning on the TV, lights and fans using his eye movements.

Watch out these vidoes to see how Jordan and his team tackle this challenge.

Jordan’s aim is for Riley to have ‘telekinetic control’ – the ability to independently take control of the technology in his environment using only his eyes – through a headband that will respond to Riley’s eye movements.
