The aim of this project is to create a control with a low-cost biosensor for a wheelchair.

To achieve this purpose was used OCZ's NIA [NIA], whose cost is under 100€.


The NIA can detect brain waves (EEG) muscle movements (EMG) and eye movements (EOG).

In this project we have only used the muscular movements, as it is less subject to electromagnetic disturbances and learning easier.

We have developed two modes of operation: with a preset destination and a mode of free movements
