About Our Project

The goal of this project is to create a BCI so that we may be able to communicate with mechanical components such as motors by using electroencephalography to collect brain signal data as input. A BCI, or brain-computer interface enables this type of collaboration between the brain and an external device. Through it, we can perform tasks ranging from pressing a button to controlling a prosthetic limb. Our project aims to create a BCI that will enable a user to control the motors of a wheelchair using brain signals. Iterations of this project have been created but ours looks to move away from having to use a computer to process the signals and determine the output. The video below shows a previous iteration of this project using a computer along with the microcontroller.
