Forget self-driving cars, Nissan has unveiled B2V (Brain-to-Vehicle) technology at CES 2018. This will basically allow vehicles to interpret signals coming directly from the driver's brain, this improving reaction times for drivers, as well as to making the car's more adaptable. "When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines. Yet B2V technology does the opposite, by using signals from their own brain to make the drive even more exciting and enjoyable," said Nissan executive VP, Daniele Schillaci.

Sony's PS4 Pro is great for racing games, but for something more realistic, you may need to check out this remote-controlled Nissan GT-R. You read that right, the automaker heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely with a DualShock 4 controller, and called it the "GT-R /C". It was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone's National Circuit, where the car hit a top speed of 131 mph and averaged 76 mph. To make things easy (and safer), it was controlled from a helicopter that followed the race car around the track. "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible. The response from the car when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights," said Mardenborough.

When DJI Phantom 4 Drone meets rescue vehicle, you get the futuristic Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept. Unlike the standard Navara, this concept features a prototype portable battery pack comprised of seven 2kW EV modules inside a weather-proof machined aluminum housing. When docked in place, these are in constant 'charge' mode, harvesting power generated by its 187-horsepower, twin-turbo 2.3L, essentially making it an alternative to a petrol generator. The drone has an operating ceiling of 19,685-feet and has the ability to fly at speeds up to 20m per second, for close to 30 minutes, while sending live footage back to the car's pop-up display hidden in the load bed wall.
