Controlling a Robotic Arm by Brainwaves and Eye Movement

Abstract : This paper proposes two paradigms for controlling a robotic arm by integrating Electrooculography (EOG) and Electroencephalography (EEG) recording techniques. The purpose of our study is to develop a feasible paradigm for helping disabled persons with their every-day needs. Using EOG, the robotic arm is placed at a desired location and, by EEG, the end-effector is controlled for grasping the object from the selected location. Simple algorithms were implemented for detecting electrophysiological signals like eye saccades, blinking and eye closure events. Preliminary results of this study are presented and compared.
