Funding Award for Brain Controlled Music Player

24 Jun 2014 



Researchers from the Department of Systems and Control Engineering and the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics have been performing research in brain-computer interfacing for several years. Their recent work led to a real-time brain-controlled music player which received widespread international interest and recognition. The group, made up of Rosanne Zerafa, Tracey Camilleri, Owen Falzon and Kenneth Camilleri, has now been awarded seed funding from the TAKEOFF Seed Fund to develop a product prototype of this brain-controlled device with the objective of making brain control more accessible. Further information about the group's research may be found here.
