Mind-Typing: Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) for Augmentative and Alternative Communication in Arabic
أنظمة التواصل البديل بااستخدام لموجات الدماغىة لمرضى الشلل الرباعي

[Usability Engineering & Ubiquitous Computing tracks]

 
Project Team:  Hadeel Al-Nughaimesh, Nuha Alkhalifah, Lama Alandas, Aljohara Alabdullatif, Latifa Almofeez
Supervisor: Dr. Areej Al-Wabil
Duration: Sep 2012 - June 2013
 
 
Arabic Brain Communicator (ABC) is an ongoing project for designing a BCI application for Emotiv Epoch headsets. The Arabic Brain Communicator system seeks to facilitate communication in Arabic for people with severe motor disabilities using peripheral pathways other than muscles and nerves, through building an application using a brainwave acquisition tool to provide typing and picture-based communication.
