"A General Protocol and Application Programming Interface for
Wireless Electroencephalographic Communication Systems"
Electroencephalographs (EEGs) are input devices available as commercial wireless headsets that are capable of picking up signals associated with facial expressions, emotions or even focused thoughts. These could be used by physically impaired people (e.g., paraplegics or victims of ALS) to control prostheses or wheelchairs, restore mobility, and increase independence. Yet, high-level and reusable protocols to program and control these EEGs are seriously lacking and impeding the development of sophisticated modular control applications. The objective of this project is to fill this void and demonstrate the flexibility of such protocols and APIs through a mind-controlled UAV project.
