Real-Time Control of Wheelchairs with Brain Waves
Date:6/29/2009

A new signal processing technology for brain machine interface (BMI) application In a press conference in Tokyo today, The BSI-TOYOTA Collaboration Center announced their success in developing a system which utilizes one of the fastest technologies in the world, controlling a wheelchair using brain waves in as little as 125 milliseconds (one millisecond, or ms, is equal to 1/1000 seconds). The press release, link to demonstration video and contact details are copied below.

(PRWeb UK) June 29, 2009 -- Major advantages of the new technology

 
  • Commands for smooth left and right turns and forward motion of the wheelchair are processed every 125 milliseconds by analyzing brain waves using signal processing technology.
  • Brain-wave analysis data are displayed on a screen in real time, giving neuro-feedback to the driver for efficient operation.
  • This technology is expected to be useful in the field of rehabilitation, and for physical and psychological support of wheelchair drivers.

The BSI-TOYOTA Collaboration Center (BTCC; Hidenori Kimura, Director), has succeeded in developing a system which utilizes one of the fastest technologies in the world, controlling a wheelchair using brain waves in as little as 125 milliseconds (one millisecond, or ms, is equal to 1/1000 seconds).

Recently technological developments in the area of brain machine interface (BMI) have received much attention. Such systems allow elderly or handicapped people to interact with the world through signals from their brains, without having to give voice commands.
