We are thrilled to share with you the memories from Cybathlon Challenges February 2024, where Csabi Köllőd and Andris Adolf represented our research team with their work in the BCI category. The Cybathlon is a unique competition showcasing the latest assistive technology innovations for people with disabilities. The BCI category challenges teams to develop brain-computer interfaces that allow users to control a virtual avatar in a racing game.
The Ebrainersteam, made up by Csabi Köllőd, Andris Adolf, István Ulbert and Kristóf Iván, together with pilots Zoltán Csortos and Zoltán Boda worked hard to prepare for this event. They used a combination of sophisticated EEG sensors to measure the brain activity of our pilot, who had to perform different mental tasks to steer the avatar. They also developed a custom software that processed the signals and translated them into commands for the game.
We are proud to say that they achieved a remarkable performance and received positive feedback from the organizers, and are eager to improve their system and participate in future events.
