Developer Project: EEG Controlled Rover – A Brain-Computer Interface


Here’s how two incredible devs created a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) to control a rover with just your thoughts and an EMOTIV Insight.

A BCI is a device that translates neuronal information from the cerebral area of the brain into data capable of controlling external software or hardware such as a computer or a robotic limb. BCIs are often used as assisted living devices for individuals with motor or sensory impairments.

For this project, we use a commercially available EEG-based BCI device called the Emotiv Insight. It provides 5-channels (i.e., 5 electrodes to pick up signals from the surface of head) which is sufficient for this build…
