Motivation

CARG 2010

Motivation

  • HCI devices used by hospitals to alleviate suffering of patients that have lost vision, balance, or mobility.

  • HCI devices very expensive

  • Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity

CARG 2010

Neuroplasticity

Property of the brain to reorganize itself

  • Phantom limbs

  • Treatment of brain damage

  • Treatment of learning difficulties

Approach taken

CARG 2010

Approach taken

Designed Prototype (BHCI):

VGA

Serial Data

Human

FPGA

TDU

Balance

Data*

Pushbuttons

*Wicab has applied for provisional patents for the use of balance data for TDUs.

Tongue display unit tdu

CARG 2010

Tongue Display Unit (TDU)

  • A TDU actuates signals onto the tongue using an electrode array

  • Data is received by the brain and interpreted

  • Signals such as balance [Danilov05] and tactile information [Tang06] are observed

Advantages

CARG 2010

Advantages

  • Low cost

  • Simple architecture

  • Flexible software

Safety issues and considerations

CARG 2010

Safety Issues and Considerations

Murphy and His Law

  • We naturally assume that any system plugged into the wall should not be connected to a person.

  • No Human Testing, Not Yet

  • For now we are doing testing with a digital oscilloscope and a multimeter.

  • Wireless is the Future

  • [Danilov05] and [Tang06], started with wired designs and left wireless as future work.

Computer human interface

CARG 2010

Computer-Human Interface

Sensory Perception

  • What humans feel

Computer human interface1

CARG 2010

Computer-Human Interface

Actuating Signals Onto the Tongue

  • 12th cranial nerve [Lin09].

  • Resistance of tongue [Faes99].

  • Approaches to signal actuation:

    • Capacitive conductor (grayscale)

    • Time multiplexing (row, column)

    • Roof of the mouth [Tang06]

    • Surface of tongue (BHCI, Brainport)

Results

CARG 2010

Results

Low Cost and Proper Operation

The design does not go near the current limit and was designed with very low cost components. *

Conclusion future work

CARG 2010

Conclusion & Future work

A low cost HCI was designed, implemented, and tested in the lab.

  • Human testing may follow, eventually.

  • Open collector ICs are required to fix fluctuating output voltage.

  • An upgrade to wireless is needed to approval for human testing.

  • Cleaning protocol

  • Plastic sealant
