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… Expand

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.

An autoregressive neural network for recognition of eye commands in an EEG-controlled wheelchair
Experimental results of controlling the wheelchair in the indoor environment showed the effectiveness of the proposed autoregressive neural network for recognizing eye movement commands for control of an electrical wheelchair using EEG technology. Expand
Human thought controlled electrical switching using fast Fourier transform
This project deals with the signals from the brain, as the different brain states are the result of different patterns of neural interaction, and the signal generated by brain will be received by the brain wave sensor and it will divide into packets and the packet data transmitted to the wireless medium.

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. Expand
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. Expand
Detection of eye closing/opening from EOG and its application in robotic arm control
It appears that the proposed interface will be very useful for persons with neurodegenerative disorders who can perform eye closing/opening and eye blinks and the speed and accuracy for these two methods were compared to assess quantitatively the ease of using this interface. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
An EEG-based brain-computer interface for cursor control.
Refinements in training procedures and in the distribution-based method used to translate mu rhythm amplitudes into cursor movements should further improve this 1-dimensional control. Expand
On-line EEG classification during externally-paced hand movements using a neural network-based classifier.
Results show that in general movement specific EEG-patterns can be found, classified in real time and used to move a cursor on a monitor to the left or right. Expand
Brain-computer interfaces based on the steady-state visual-evoked response.
