Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) is a system that allows you to control machines using your brain activity directly, rather than through intermediary interfaces like a mouse, keyboard, touchscreen or voice. EMOTIV technology converts brain waves to digital signals that can be used to control an endless number of digital outputs such as games, IoT devices, communication devices and audio/visual content. EmotivBCI is a desktop application for Mac and Windows that allows you to view and train the EMOTIV data streams used for BCI. These data streams are the following:
- Performance Metrics allow passive and continuous control based on your real time cognitive state, including measurements of focus, excitement, interest, engagement, stress and relaxation. No training is required.
We also offer two additional data streams that are not from the brain directly, but can be applied to enhance your BCI system.
The personalized training profiles that you create in EmotivBCI can be used with our Node-RED toolbox to control a wide array of outputs including social media, IoT devices and robotics. Your BCI profile can also be used in other third party applications connected to EMOTIV via our Cortex service.
This document is intended to help you to get started with EmotivBCI and to understand how to use the various features that it offers.
