IEEE Transactions on Systems Man and Cybernetics: Systems, 44 (9) . pp. 1278-1285. ISSN 2168-2216 [Article] (doi:10.1109/TSMC.2014.2313317)


A major challenge in two-class brain–computer interface
(BCI) systems is the low bandwidth of the communication channel, especially while communicating and controlling assistive devices, such as a smart wheelchair or a telepresence mobile robot, which requires multiple
motion command options in the form of forward, left, right, backward, and start/stop. To address this, an adaptive user-centric graphical user interface referred to as the intelligent adaptive user interface (iAUI) based on an adaptive shared control mechanism is proposed. The iAUI offers
multiple degrees-of-freedom control of a robotic device by providing a continuously updated prioritized list of all the options for selection to the BCI user, thereby improving the information transfer rate. Results have been verified with multiple participants controlling a simulated as well as physical pioneer robot.
