Abstract: Imagine having the power to control devices around you without moving a muscle. A quick glance at a control panel and you could change the channel on your TV, play your favourite song on YouTube, turn on a light, or get your coffee machine to prepare you the perfect brew. But automation can go far beyond these menial tasks. Co-ordinator of the BrainApp project, Dr Tracey Camilleri, together with her colleagues Prof. Kenneth Camilleri, Dr Owen Falzon, and Ing. Rosanne Zerafa, have been working steadily over the last 14 years to make it possible for movement-impaired individuals to control computers or machines using their brain signals. The team combined their backgrounds in signal processing, biomedical cybernetics, and programming to produce a system that can monitor brain activity, recognise patterns in this activation, and then translate this to control an external appliance, using nothing but brain power.
