Abstract

Mobile computing, coupled with advanced types of input interfaces, such as Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs), and smart spaces can improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities. In this paper, we describe the architecture and the prototype of an assistive system, which allows users to express themselves and partially preserve their independence in controlling electrical devices at home. Even in absence of muscular functions, the proposed system would still allow the user some communication and control capabilities, by relying on non-invasive BCIs. Experiments show how the fully-software realization of the system guarantees effective use with BCIs.
