EVALUATION OF AN SSVEP AND EYE GAZE HYBRID BCI

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

An evaluation of a hybrid Brain-Computer Interface that combines input modalities of Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) and eye gaze is provided. Thirty volunteers participated and all but one could use the BCI, eye-tracker and hybrid system. The hybrid BCI was compared with SSVEP alone for navigating to four domotic tasks issued via a graphical user interface. Mean performance metrics of Accuracy (Acc.), Efficiency (Eff.) and Information Transfer Rate (ITR) all improved (mean Acc. = 93.3% to 99.84%, mean Eff. = 89.56% to 99.74%, mean ITR = 23.78 to 24.41 bpm). While the absolute improvements are small, better performance may contribute to user acceptability, as the eye-gaze component adds minimal additional user effort to the interaction yet provides control that is more robust.
