Summer is the perfect time for experimentation and fine tuning of our Brain Computer Interface system. That’s why we arranged a complete two days session of recordings and playing around with our OpenBCI EEG system and a small Arduino controlled vehicle. Lab member Thodoris Pantazopoulos, Electrical and Computer Engineer student from the University of Patras who is responsible for the experiments, is shown in action on the following video controlling the vehicle using left and right imaginary movements.
For the 8-channel EEG acquisition, OpenBCI is used to capture Thodoris’ brain activity. Data from the C1, C2, C3, C4, CP1, CP2, CP3, and CP4 EEG channels are captured wirelessly on the right laptop,streamed to the network using the LSL protocol, captured and processed by the laptop on the left. On this machine, data are classified into movements using a previously trained pattern recognition system and finally converted to commands that are being sent to the vehicle when it waits for directions.
More details on the procedure will be published in short time, so stay tuned!
