Abstract

BCI is connecting the brain to the computer for getting the information, structure and working of brain. Electroencephalography (EEG) is type of making the connection between brain and computer; using EEG we are able to get the signals. Here in the project we used Electroencephalogram (EEG) sensor to make the connection with brain which is Neurosky brainwave sensor. Using Neurosky sensor we get the signals, after plotting and enhancing that signals we get the good form of the brain wave signals. These signals are used for making the movement of wheelchair. EEG headset is placed on the head to get the brainwave signals. From direct brain we get raw signals which are having very small amplitude so these signals are amplified and plotted in the sequence of the frequency using the MATLAB software. Connecting the software part of the signals to the hardware part of the wheelchair we used Arduino software, using that we are able to establish the connection. Brainwave controlled wheelchair is useful for the paralyzed and handicap people.
