Fundamental Study for Relationship between Cognitive Task and Brain Activity During Car Driving
For a long period, many researches about the human spatial recognition are being carried on. They are needed to make robot and automatic driving system for a car or wheelchair and with functions as high as those of humans: spatial perception, decision-making, and determining direction. The final goal of our measuring brain activity research is to contribute to developing of welfare robots with functions that are responsive like human. In this paper, the hemoglobin density change of human frontal lobe is measured. First, to analyze human spatial perception, experiments using a driving movie were designed. In the experiments NIRS (Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy) was used.
