BCI visual applications

Scientific Description: Bci-Vizapp is a library that allows (in interaction with OpenViBE) to build BCI (Brain Computer Interfaces) applications based on the P300 speller principle. Bci-Vizapp provides a library that allows you to create the BCI's stimulation part as part of the Qt toolkit. Being able to use a standard toolkit to make BCI applications is a strong Bci-Vizapp originality. Indeed, in general the use of such toolkits is prohibited by the need for a very precise control of the display timings, which generally eliminates high-level graphic toolkits such as Qt.
Functional Description: BCI-VIZAPP includes a virtual keyboard for typing text, a photodiode monitoring application for checking timing issues. It communicates with the OpenViBE acquisition server for signal acquisition and with the OpenViBE designer for signal processing. The configuration is performed through a wizard.
This software is a new version following the CoAdapt P300 stimulator software.
News Of The Year: Bci-Vizapp is undergoing a profound transmutation with the help of CRISAM's SED in ADT BciBrowser (part of the AMDT). This change aims at integrating the functionality of Bci-Vizapp in third-party applications such as a web browsers.
