A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is an alternative/augmentative communication device that can provide users with an interaction path, based on the interpretation of his/her brain activity. Such technology, applied to AAL contexts, could potentially have a major impact on daily-living, extending the ageing at home paradigm also to users with severe motor impairments, for whom the interaction with the surrounding environment is troublesome. In this paper, a low cost BCI development platform is presented and its performance assessed by means of an illustrative application example using SSVEP paradigm to switch on and off lights. Comparison against other SSVEP signal processing methods in literature is also made.

Abstract

A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is an alternative/augmentative communication device that can provide users with an interaction path, based on the interpretation of his/her brain activity. Such technology, applied to AAL contexts, could potentially have a major impact on daily-living, extending the ageing at home paradigm also to users with severe motor impairments, for whom the interaction with the surrounding environment is troublesome. In this paper, a low cost BCI development platform is presented and its performance assessed by means of an illustrative application example using SSVEP paradigm to switch on and off lights. Comparison against other SSVEP signal processing methods in literature is also made.
