“Researchers at the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, in Italy, have recently developed a cutting-edge architecture that enables the operation of an assistive robot via a P300-based brain computer interface (BCI). This architecture, presented in a paper pre-published on arXiv, could finally allow people with severe motion disabilities to perform manipulation tasks, thus simplifying their lives.
The system developed by the researchers is based on a light robot manipulator. Essentially, this manipulator receives high-level commands from users via a BCI based on the P300 paradigm. In neuroscience, P300 waves are responses elicited by a human being’s brain during the process of decision-making…”
