BCI Group features in top 30 Projects of new report
The Brain Computer Interface (BCI) research group is featured in the recently released Parliamentary Report on R&D in Assistive Technology published by the Department of Health. The report is authored by the Foundation for Assistive Technology (FAST) and contains a comprehensive review of the projects undertaken across the UK between April 2011 and March 2012 that aim to develop innovative technologies to support older and disabled people to maximise their independence.
The report includes a comprehensive listing of over 300 publicly-funded research projects, providing a summary of each project. Around 30 projects that concluded within the year are featured in detail to highlight the potential for assistive technology to transform people’s lives.
A project undertaken by the BCI group entitled, "Intelligent Pre- and Post-Processing Algorithms for Autonomous Multiclass Brain-Computer Interfaces", is featured on page 22 of the report. The aim was to produce an accurate and fast BCI system which can be easily configured using advanced signal processing tools
