Development and Implementation of an Adaptive Human-Machine Interface based on Ear Muscle Signals

Tuga, Michele René

Abstract: Human-machine interfaces act as interpreters. They receive human-generated signals, generate control signals and transfer these to executing devices. This work addresses the need of people living with tetraplegia for operating executing devices. An adaptive head-only human-machine interface receiving and processing ear muscle signals is introduced. Testing persons successfully operated simulations and an electric-powered wheelchair with the aid of the proposed human-machine interface.
