World Robot Contest: BCI Controlled Robot Contest

Beijing, China, Aug, 2022

Overview

2022 BCI Controlled Robot Contest will be held as the one of the four main contents of World Robot Conference in Beijing, China. The final contest will be held in  Aug, 2022.

The BCI Controlled Robot Contest has been hosted for 8 years, attracts more than 2000 participants. This contest is sponsored by National Nature Science Foundation of China (NSFC), organized mainly by Ministry of information science in NSFC, the Chinese Institute of Electronics, and Tsinghua University. In 2019, the fastest BCI controlled typing record was made in the competition, which was 691.55bits/min ideal information transmit rate. The contest consists of real time demo of BCI control system, algorithm competition, oral presentation, and industry exhibition. The aim of this event is to foster BCI technological innovation, encourage cross-sector communication and cooperation between BCI research teams and needing industries.

Four sessions of the contest are as follows:

  1. BCI algorithm competition

The algorithm session will cover 4 paradigms – SSVEP, ERP, motor imagination, and Emotional BCI. The first 3 paradigms will use both “offline data ” and “online data” sessions, while the Emotional BCI paradigm will only have “offline line data” sessions.

  1. BCI system control demo

We have real time demo of BCI system control system using three paradigms of SSVEP, ERP, and motor imagination. Each group will compete the information transmit rates. The collected data will be used for the algorithm competition.

  1. Best oral presentation award.

We will invite 50% submission as oral presentation and select the best presentation award.

  1. BCI Exhibition

We will invite BCI related research group/industry to demonstrate their latest technology in the exhibition.

Registration

All people that interested in BCI technology are welcomed to participate.

This contest is free of registration.
