Demonstration: MindDrone – a mashup of future technologies
In 2015 SURFnet displayed a demonstration where a person could control a drone by operating it through a Brain Computer Interface (BCI). The subject would wear the BCI and within a few moments (live on stage) would train specific software to lift-off a small drone. The demo was carried out at one location with all the hardware and (wireless) networks in one place. We would like to enhance the demo by adding a 2nd location. At location A the subject will wear the BCI and try to lift-off the drone, at location B the drone will be physically present and will get it’s control commands over the internet. The drone has a camera that will stream back the video the drone is capturing in real time to location A.
