Brain Computer Interface Robotic Arm


Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are tools that open a new channel of communication between humans and machines. BCI helped in the evolution of a new world where man and computer had never been so close.
Advancements in cognitive neuro-sciences facilitated us with better brain imaging techniques and thus interfaces between machines and the human brain became a reality. In the case of severe motor disabilities, like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or spinal cord injury (SCI), these pathways are blocked and cannot be used for communication. Since the brain functions of these people are not affected by the disease, BCI can provide an effective way to translate thought into machine readable commands.
Electroencephalography (EEG), can be used for applications like prosthetic devices, applications in warfare, gaming, virtual reality and robotics upon signal conditioning and processing. This project is entirely based on Brain-Computer Interface with an objective of actuating a robotic arm with the help of device commands derived from EEG signals. This system unlike any other existing technology is purely non-invasive in nature, cost effective and is one of its kinds that can serve various requirements such as prosthesis. This suggests a low-cost system implementation that can even serve as a reliable substitute for the existing technologies of prosthesis like BIONICS.
