Real-Time Robotic Car Control Using Brainwaves and Head Movement
MetadataShow full item record
Emotiv Epoc Headset is a portable and low-cost device. In this study, Emotiv Epoc headset was used in order to obtain real-time gyro and EEG signals. The aim of this study was to control a robotic car in real-time by using head movement and opening and closing of the eyes. The maximum and minimum amplitude of the gyro signal, and the ratios of the beta waves of O1 and O2 channel to alpha waves of the same channels were used as threshold values. These threshold values were used to determine the direction of the robotic car. Because of its low-cost and easy implementation, Arduino Uno was used to manage the robotic car. This study has shown that brain waves and head movements can control a device in real time. This system has the potential to be used in neurofeedback and brain-computer interface applications.
