With the topic of service robots in mind and Open BCI available to us, we decided to approach the issue of electric wheelchair control. Motivated by quadriplegic patients, most electric wheelchairs require at minimum some dexterous control of a joystick, and so we wanted to explore an affordable alternative. Working on a smaller scale as a proof of concept, our electric wheelchair utilizes 3 unique neural responses to create 3 commands for forwards, left and right.
