  • BCI Implementation For Blind Subjects using Signal Processing BY-Sanchita Singha
  • Contents  What is BCI?  How human brain works  How BCI works  Uses of BCI  Implementation  Constraints  Conclusion 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 2
  • What is BCI • BCI-Brain Computer Interface • Direct communication pathway between the brain and an external device • Reads electrical signals from brain 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 3
  • How BCI works 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 4
  • Types of BCI 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 5
  • Practical Use of BCI  People with spinal injuries  Targeted for people with paralysis  People with acquired blindness can get vision 11/23/2013 Jens Naumann, a man with acquired blindness BCI Implementation 6
  • How virtual eye works 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 7
  • Flowchart 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 8
  • Signal Acquisition 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 9
  • Training 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 10
  • Feature Extraction 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 11
  • Pre-processing 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 12
  • Constraints • EEGs measure tiny voltage potentials. The signal is weak and prone to interference. • Each neuron is constantly sending and receiving signals through a complex web of connections. There are chemical processes involved as well, which EEGs can't pick up on. • The equipment heavy & hence not portable. 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 13
  • Conclusion • Enables people to communicate and control appliances with use of brain signals • Open gates for disabled people. • Numerous future applications 11/23/2013 BCI Implementation 14
