A new video released by the Australian Army shows soldiers using a form of enhanced digital ‘telepathy’ to control robot dogs.
Unlike more well-known brain-machine interface technologies like Elon Musk’s Neuralink, the new system doesn’t use an implant. Instead, the system reads brain signals via an external helmet and then translates that information into commands for the robot dogs. Although still in the testing stages, robotic systems that can be controlled by thoughts instead of verbal or physical commands could offer a significant technological advantage to militaries of the future
ENHANCED ELECTRONIC “TELEPATHY’ A POTENTIAL BATTLE FIELD GAME CHANGER
“This collaboration focused on how we could create a brain robotic interface that will allow a soldier, rather than operating an autonomous system with a command console, to operate the system using brain signals,” explained Lieutenant Colonel Kate Tollenaar from the Robotic and Autonomous Systems Implementation and Coordination Office (RICO) of the Australian Army.
Part of the Future Land Warfare Branch, RICO, was supported in this effort by researchers from the University of Technology, Sydney, the Defence Innovation Hub, and the Defence Science and Technology Group.
Specifically, the technology involves a hybrid system built using an off-the-shelf HoloLens 2 headset and a specialized Raspberry Pi-based AI decoder. The custom-built and programmed AI decoder captures brain waves and translates those signals into useful commands that were sent via ‘telepathy’ to the autonomous robot dog…
