Introduction to Non Invasive EEG Based Brain Computer Interfaces for Assistive Technologies Excerpt :

This book aims to bring to the reader an overview of different applications of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) based on more than 20 years of experience working on these interfaces. The author provides a review of the human brain and EEG signals, describing the human brain, anatomically and physiologically, with the objective of showing some of the patterns of EEG (electroencephalogram) signals used to control BCIs. It then introduces BCIs and different applications, such as a BCI based on ERD/ERS Patterns in α rhythms (used to command a robotic wheelchair with an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system onboard it); a BCI based on dependent-SSVEP to command the same robotic wheelchair; a BCI based on SSVEP to command a telepresence robot and its onboard AAC system; a BCI based on SSVEP to command an autonomous car; a BCI based on independent-SSVEP (using Depth-of-Field) to command the same robotic wheelchair; the use of compressive technique in SSVEP-based BCI; a BCI based on motor imagery (using different techniques) to command a robotic monocycle and a robotic exoskeleton; and the first steps to build a neurorehabilitation system based on motor imagery of pedalling together an in immersive virtual environment. This book is intended for researchers, professionals and students working on assistive technology.

Development of a Hybrid Brain computer Interface Controller for a Semi autonomous Wheelchair Excerpt :

Smart wheelchairs with semi or fully autonomous functions, can greatly improve the mobility of persons with physical impairments. However, most are controlled using inputs that require physical manipulation (e.g. joystick controllers) and for persons with severe physical impairments this method of control can be too demanding. A noninvasive brain-computer interface (BCI) technology-based controller could bridge the gap between smart wheelchairs and physically impaired persons with severe conditions. Current BCI-controlled wheelchairs rely on detecting steady-state visually evoked potential (SSVEP) responses as these typically have the greatest data transfer rate. However, this method requires the user to focus on a screen for an extended period of time. This causes strain on the user and takes their attention away from their surroundings, which could be dangerous in a scenario that requires navigation around multiple moving objects. The main goal of this project is to design a hybrid BCI controller using an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset to detect hand motor imagery (MI) and jaw electromyography (EMG) signals to control a smart wheelchair in conjunction with its semi-autonomous capabilities. A controller of this kind is well-known to have low data transfer rates, and therefore has lower accuracy and longer response times as compared to other controllers. However, a properly structured controller hierarchy between the BCI controller and semi-autonomous system is developed to compensate the limitations of the controller's accuracy. OpenViBE, an open source BCI programming application, and a commercial grade EEG headset are used for data acquisition. A multiple common spatial pattern (CSP) filter and linear discriminant analysis (LDA) classifier system are chosen to process and classify the user's brain activity. Users are trained to use the system and classifier profiles are optimized for each user. Two subjects are trained to use the BCI system and the results of
