Blinks are detected by the NeurosSky EEG headset, it is required to use the application. You can purchase it in our web shop: http://www.mindtech.hu
The application is designed for disabled people, who are unable to interact with their environment but are capable of voluntary blinking. The app can distinguish between single blinks and double blinks, and these are the signals that control the application. To make the control easier, an automatic iteration is implemented. During this mode the user can navigate only by single blinks, because double blinking can be tiresome for some patients.
It is adviced to clean the sensor and the contacted skin, because it can influence the blink detection! On first start, a unique blink-intensity profile is created for the user in order to provide perfect performance and easy navigation. The blink intensity profile can be recalibrated any time or can set manually to a desired value.
Please consider that learning how to control your blinks is not easy, especially controlling double blinks. It may take some time and practice to learn to control the app! The sensor is very sensitive, please avoid facial muscle movements and intense body movements, because it can disturb the blink detection.
