Brainwave Controlled Electrical Wheelchair
MMU University, Faculty of Engineering & Technology, 75450 Melaka, Malaysia
Electrical wheelchair provides mobility to the people who lost their moving capability. To allow most of the people to be able to control the electrical wheelchair, the best solution is by directly using the brain instead of using joystick or buttons. The first objective of this project is to provide the basic mobility by constructing an electrical wheelchair. The second objective is to process the electroencephalogram (EEG) signals for controlling purpose. The EEG device which used in this project to capture the signals is the Emotiv EPOC headset. A computer is used to receive and process the EEG signals, then send the control signal to the microcontroller of the electrical wheelchair. All the hardware are connected wirelessly via Bluetooth.
