This work discusses the implementation of incremental hidden Markov model (HMM) training methods for electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis. The HMMs are used to model the ECG signal as a sequence of connected elementary waveforms. Moreover, an adaptation process is implemented to adapt the HMMs to the ECG signal of a particular individual. The adaptation… (More)
This work presents a robotic wheelchair that can be commanded by a Brain Computer Interface (BCI) through Steady-State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP), Motor Imagery and Word Generation. When using SSVEP, a statistical test is used to extract the evoked response and a decision tree is used to discriminate the stimulus frequency, allowing volunteers to… (More)
This paper presents the evaluation of seven techniques of feature extraction (PSD, F-Test, EMD, MCE, CCA, LASSO and MSI) for gaze-target detections in a SSVEP-based BCI. Two type of technologies for visual stimulation were used (LCD and LEDs). Five differents windows lengths (1, 2, 4, 5 and 10 s) were used and seven volunteers participated in this study.… (More)
This paper presents a comparison among three methods for Steady-State Visually Evoked Potentials (SSVEP) detection. These techniques are based on Power Spectral Density Analysis (PSDA) and Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA). The first method estimates the signal-to-noise ratio of the power spectrum in each stimulus frequency using PSDA, which is called… (More)
This paper presents a proposal of Brain Computer Interface (BCI) to command an autonomous car. This BCI is based on the paradigm of visual evoked potentials (VEP) and event-related desynchronization (ERD). A menu interface is presented to the user with disabilities in order he/she can choose a destination for the autonomous car. The selection of the final… (More)
Several students of Bioengineering complain about the excess of theoretical classes and the difficulty to assimilate the subject taught. This article presents a strategy to mix theory and practice when teaching, thus motivating students to engage in their studies.
