More details about B2CI 2019

B2CI 2019 will be hosting multiple events at the collegiate competition:
1. Brain-Drone Race
Students will use headsets to pick up brain waves to control aerial drones. The UAS Academy Program ( is available to help students learn about aerial drones.  For more information please contact Dr. Garima Bajwa.

2. Brain-Controlled Computer Games
Game developers will design and code computer games that utilize brainwave headsets in any capacity. Judging will be subjective, but rubric based. Teams can use any headsets they choose for their games. Headsets can be commercial or open source.  For more information please contact Aaron Oldenburg.

3. Poster Session and Open Showcase
This allows engineering and computer science majors, along with psychology and biology majors, to enter research posters on brain waves, EEGs, neurofeedback, bio-signal processing, or any related topic. Student teams are invited to enter B2CI projects of their own design in the Open Showcase. Examples might be Brain Controlled BB-8 droids, EEG headsets to control robot cars, or wheelchairs controlled by brainwaves.  For more information please contact Dr. Suzanne Keilson or Dr. Julie Grignon.
