Many disorders can disrupt the neuromuscular channels used by the brain to communicate with and control its external environment. Patients with severe neural disorders lose most of voluntary muscle control. Some patients can con- trol their eye movements and may be able to communicate. In the absence of methods for repairing the damage done by these disorders, the only option for restoring function to those with motor impairments is to provide the brain with a new, muscular/non-muscular and non…

Brain-Controlled Wheelchair Review: From Wet Electrode to Dry Electrode, From Single Modal to Hybrid Modal, From Synchronous to Asynchronous

This review investigates the brain-controlled wheelchair from multiple perspectives, and summarizes the development trend of BCW based on the previous investigation, and it is mainly manifested in three aspects: from a wet electrode to dry electrode, from single-mode to multi-mode, and from synchronous control to asynchronous control.

Telemanipulation of a Robotic Arm using EEG Artifacts

Use of teeth clenching and eye blink ‘artifacts’ for an intuitive and easy to use control of a robotic arm in three dimensions to perform a pick and place task is presented.

Mean Threshold and ARNN Algorithms for Identification of Eye Commands in an EEG-Controlled Wheelchair

Experimental results of controlling the wheelchair in the indoor environment illustrated the effectiveness of the proposed approaches for recognizing eye movements for control of an electrical wheelchair using EEG technology.

A multimodal wheelchair control system based on EEG signals and Eye tracking fusion

The goal of this paper is to illustrate the EPW control performance amelioration when using multi sources compared to single source control.

Feature extraction and classification of imagined motor movement electroencephalogram signals

The reliability of a BCI has been analysed, which is implemented using Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals, recorded from motor imagery, for imagination of three different mental tasks: left fist blink, right fist blink and both fists blink.

A combined EEG and EOG signals based wheelchair control in virtual environment

A combining Electroencephalographic (EEG) and Electro-oculographic (EOG) approach has been developed and the output of the classifier has been used successfully to control the displacement of a wheelchair in a virtual environment.

Execution and Performance Evaluation of Cognitive and Expressive Event on a robotic Arm

Out of the mental state detection suits provided by Emotiv EPOC the cognitiv and expressiv suite have been considered and the following movements will be detected based on the cognitive event selected: arm up, Arm down and stop action.

1D Convolutional Neural Network approach to classify voluntary eye blinks in EEG signals for BCI applications

The goal is to develop an algorithm that can detect and discriminate between voluntary (forced) and involuntary (natural) blinking so that, in the future, an EEG-based BCI system that is able to control a device through eye movements could be developed, which would be of great use for all people with motor disabilities who can control eye movements.

A self configured and hybrid fusion approach for an electric wheelchair control

The goal is to control an EPW using an hybrid and self configured fusion technique between EEG signals, head movement and eye tracking and voice recognition was used to activate and deactivate the control system.



Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) for communication and control

With adequate recognition and effective engagement of all issues, BCI systems could eventually provide an important new communication and control option for those with motor disabilities and might also give those without disabilities a supplementary control channel or a control channel useful in special circumstances.

Brain Computer Interface for Communication and Control

This thesis defines BCI technology and will display how brain signals can be recorded using different methods and will show the reason for choosing Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) rather than other methods.

Evaluation of an Electroencephalographic-Based Control Device

This study characterized the performance of this human-machine system that uses the steady-state visual evoked response for system control and found that participants were able to use this form of EEG-based control and performance was stable.

A spelling device for the paralysed

A new means of communication for the completely paralysed that uses slow cortical potentials of the electro-encephalogram to drive an electronic spelling device is developed.

Brain-computer interfaces based on the steady-state visual-evoked response.

The Air Force Research Laboratory has implemented and evaluated two brain-computer interfaces (BCI's) that translate the steady-state visual evoked response into a control signal for operating a

Brain-computer interfaces for communication and control

The brain's electrical signals enable people without muscle control to physically interact with the world through the use of their brains' electrical signals.
