Title: PETE Portable EEG Tool for Education
Agency: DOD
Contract: W31P4Q-13-C-0158
Award Amount: $99,796.00


Current EEG technology is restricted to traditional research or clinical venues due to the technical expertise required for use and interpretation of data and the high cost of available systems. Previous attempts at developing low cost systems have resulted in unreliable data output. There is a need to develop portable, easy to use and inexpensive EEG technology that would stream neural data directly to a tablet or smartphone, and could be used to expand neuroscience teaching in the classroom, to provide diagnostic information regarding brain function in suspected injury as part of a fielded first-aid kit, and eventually to crowd-source questions regarding the function of the human brain. The current effort proposes the development of a self-contained, multi-channel, single-chip biosignal monitoring sensor with wireless programmability custom dry sensors of user or use-case defined location. The system shall stream data for rapid graphical visualization support interpretation by non-technical.
