Abstract

BCI-controlled smart homes enable people with severe motor disabilities to perform household activities, which would otherwise be inaccessible to them. In this paper, we present a proof of concept of an assistive robot with telepresence functionality inside a Virtual Reality (VR) smart home. Using live EEG data and a P300 Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), the user is able to control a virtual agent and interact with the smart home environment. We further discuss the potential use cases of our proposed system for patients with motor impairment and recommend directions for future research.
