A Game-based Learning Framework for Controlling Brain-Actuated Wheelchairs

Paraplegia is a disability caused by impairment in motor or sensory functions of the lower limbs. Most paraplegic subjects use mechanical wheelchairs for their movement, however, patients with reduced upper limb functionality may benefit from the use of motorised, electric wheelchairs. Depending on the patient, learning how to control these wheelchairs can be hard (if at all possible), time-consuming, demotivating, and to some extent dangerous. This paper proposes a game-based learning framework

On Usage of EEG Brain Control for Rehabilitation of Stroke Patients

This paper demonstrates rapid prototyping of a stroke rehabilitation system consisting of an interactive 3D virtual reality computer game environment interfaced with an EEG headset for control and interaction using brain waves. The system is intended for training and rehabilitation of partially monoplegic stroke patients and uses low- cost commercial-off-the-shelf products like the Emotiv EPOC EEG headset and the Unity 3D game engine. A number of rehabilitation methods exist that can improve mo

3D-printed open-source robot marker holder

An open-source robot marker holder that can be connected to the FESTO Parallel gripper DHPS. This robot marker holder can be 3D-printed by using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) manufacturing technology, thus making the rapid-prototyping process very economical and fast. A self-locking mechanism allows for docking the marker in a very reliable way. The pen holder incorporates a metal spring that allows for accommodating a variety of movements for the robot without requiring high accuracy

A Fully-Immersive Haptic, Audio and Visual Experience Framework

This work presents the development of an open-source low-cost framework for a fully-immersive haptic, audio and visual experience. This framework is realised by exclusively adopting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and tools. In particular, vibration actuators and open-source electronics are employed in the design of a pair of novel and inexpensive haptic gloves. These gloves allow for establishing a kinaesthetic link between a human operator interacting with a computer-generated envir

European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS) bibliography style and Latex template

I am currently writing a research article to be submitted to the European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS). As for all my other scientific articles, I am using LaTeX as typesetting system. I am a big fan of LaTeX not only because it is the de facto standard for the communication and publication of scientific documents but also because this system is available as free software.
