Iranian engineer Tinoush Ganjineh has designed
the first vehicle ever to be controlled with commands coming from the human eye.
Ganjineh, who also directed a project for making the car at the Freie Universitat in the German capital of Berlin, told IRNA on Saturday that the vehicle is equipped with a myriad of electronic gadgets and fitted with a variety of software programs that even allow unpiloted driving.
It uses cameras, radio transmitters and other telemetric devices to convert operator eye movement to instructions in a form usable by the vehicle's navigational system.
Ganjineh said that he started work on the project in 2006 but later decided to use it for his doctoral dissertation due to its success.
A group of 12 engineers worked on the car, which also is hoped to help curb road accidents because of its high-tech equipment.
The original model can reach a speed of only 60 kilometers per hour.
The University has put the estimated USD 375,000 vehicle on show at the Berlin Tempelhof Airport.
