Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) research requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The core concept harnesses brain wave activity to enable a user to interact with devices without the need for physical activity. There are many possible benefactors of such technology, including rehabilitation, supporting disabled people in everyday activities and the gaming(More)
Modern business methods apply micro management techniques to all aspects of systems development. We investigate the use of product measures during the intra-release cycles of an application as a means of assessing release readiness. The measures include those derived from the Chidamber and Kemerer metric suite and some coupling measures of our own. Our(More)
This paper describes a study to assess the reliability of a CMMI<sup>reg</sup> ARC 1.1 Class C process appraisal method called Express Process Appraisal (EPA). The EPA was developed by the Centre for Software Process Technologies to address the process improvement appraisal needs of small to medium sized software development organisations in Northern(More)
A Brain Computer Interface (BCI) provides direct communication from the brain to a computer or electronic device. In order for BCIs to become practical assistive devices it is necessary to develop robust systems, which can be used outside of the laboratory. This paper appraises the technical challenges, and outlines the design of an intuitive user(More)
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are seen as a potential solution in overcoming some of the restraints that individuals with highly restricted movement face in their daily life; for instance the ability to operate appliances independently, to communicate, and to access forms of entertainment. Recently in the laboratory many successes have been reported and(More)
Many companies face the need to produce frequent releases of their software. Yet many do not manage to release on time and within their development schedule. The reasons for this are numerous. We suggest that an accurate insight into progress of a project towards completion would assist a project manager in balancing the various commercial decisions made(More)
Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) aim to provide a mechanism by which individuals with severe forms of paralysis can communicate their wishes to others or gain control over devices in their environment. This paper describes the evaluation of an interface designed for use with BCI, which is dedicated to providing a flexible and extensible framework for(More)
