Using bio signals to control the Nao robot

The main goal of this master project is to find and develop effective and intuitive ways to control a Nao robot using biopotential signals. Using external sensors (non-invasive technologies) these signals can be divided in the following three categories: electromyography (EMG), electrooculography (EOG) and electroencephalography (EEG). The main focus will be on the exploitation of EMG, with the possibility to use EEG as a control mechanism. Using biopotential signals being already a complex task when considering available technology, the control of the robot will only consist of guiding the robot through a complex environment, such as a maze, possibly with obstacles.
