Ambient intelligence has acquired a relevant presence in assistive technologies. Context-awareness, the ability to perceive situations and to act providing suitable responses, plays a key role in such presence. BrainAble, an ongoing European project, aims at raising the autonomy of people with functional diversity, facilitating and enhancing the interaction(More)
Assistive technologies need to constantly adapt and react to user needs. To this end, ambient intelligence techniques could be adopted. One approach consists of defining suitable rules to trigger actions or suggestions to the users. In this paper, ATML (Ambient intelligence Trigger Markup Language), a novel suitable language, is presented and described.(More)
In this work, the benefits of Ambient Intelligence for enhancing user experience with Brain Computer Interfaces are explored. In a smart-home environment, statistics of devices activations are used to learn user habits and to adapt the interface for providing the most usual option to the user, reducing the time spent navigating through hierarchical menus.(More)
We present the prototype of a context-aware framework that allows users to control smart home devices and to access internet services via a Hybrid BCI system of an auto-calibrating sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) based BCI and another assistive device (Integra Mouse mouth joystick). While there is extensive literature that describes the merit of Hybrid BCIs,(More)
