Abstract
This project will develop a proof of principle prototype for an advanced EEG system at a price point comparable to current'consumer'devices. The portable, wireless EEG headset will support both a simple, easy-to-use water based electrode and Cognionics'new flexible dry electrode. The cap will automatically position the electrodes into the International 10-20 standard and the electronics will support simultaneous recording from all sensors. With conventional EEG designs, implementing such a feature set is prohibitively expensive. However, with Cognionics'innovations in electronics, it is possible to construct an inexpensive EEG headset with a feature set and signal quality comparable to research and medical-grade devices. Unlike many current EEG systems, the Cognionics system will be designed to output unencrypted raw EEG via a standard Bluetooth interface that will allow researchers and developers to build custom applications around the headset. In Phase I, the core headset and electronics will be designed, constructed and evaluated. A simple app with visualization to demonstrate end-to-end connectivity will be created. The cost of mass production will be computed and verified to meet a ~$30 BOM.
