Emotional BCI Control of a Smart Wheelchair

Anas Fattouh, Odile Horn and Guy Bourhis

In this paper, an emotional BCI control system to drive a smart wheelchair is proposed. The proposed BCI control system permits to the user to select one of four commands to drive the wheelchair. Once a command is selected, the control system executes the selected command and, at the same time, monitors the emotional state of the user. While the user is satisfied, the selected command is still executed and when the user becomes unsatisfied, the control system will stop the wheelchair and ask the user to select another command.

Keywords: Smart Wheelchair, Control, BCI, Emotional State.
