Design and Implement of BCI System Based on Android Platform

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 154)


To enhance human interaction with machines, research interest is growing to develop a “Brain-Computer Interface” (BCI) system, which allows communication of a human with a machine only by use of brain signals. In this paper, one type of mobile game on android platform was designed for application of brain computer interfaces. In this system, The cerebral cortex EEG based on motor imagery were fed into the input of signal processing module, and then classification algorithm module of motor imagery deal with this signal. Output results for classification of motor imagery were converted to control the role in the games. The result of experiment shows that BCI technology not only can be used for rehabilitation, but also can be used for general public entertainment.
