The project aimed to develop the “Mindtooth system” to provide real-time indicators of cognitive or emotional states by processing cerebral signals. The system should provide affordable cross-application indicators based on scientifically proven algorithms, using a wearable, comfortable and easy-to-fit EEG headset, equipped with sponge-based sensor technology and a click-on amplifier. During the project, this innovative system was validated in three different environments: aviation training for pilots, car driving simulator in automotive, and monitoring for industrial workers.
The project had a duration of 28 months and received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No. 950998. The project coordinator was BrainSigns, a leading company in the field of neurophysiological measurements and related applications based in Italy. The multidisciplinary consortium also consisted of Brain Products, the Instituto Technológico de Castilla y Leon (ITCL) from Spain, and IBM Israel.
Further details about the newly developed Mindtooth system will be available in our next newsletter.
