Abstract: This paper presents an idea of building a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) based control for next generation electric wheelchairs. The aim is to explore the area of research on BCI based control to potentially develop a next generation of electric wheelchair which is able to benefit to paralyzed patients. This EEG interfacing development controls a wheel chair through a skid steering method. The mechanical part including the conventional steering can be eliminated. It also uses differential speed that controls the propulsion and turning. The system is neat, low cost and high dynamic performance; it can be used for stoke patent or disabled patents.
