Control of a robotic arm using brain signals

Research team : CORTEX -

Brain-Machine interfaces (BMI) interpret brain activity to produce commands on a computer or other devices like a robotic arm. A BMI therefore allows its user, and especially a person with high mobility impairment, to interact with its environment only using its brain activity. We will present how it is possible to decode non-invasive or invasive brain signals to perform a reaching or a grasping movement using a Jaco robotic arm by Kinova.

Combining Brain-Computer Interfaces and Medical Simulators: Detecting Mental Workload to Adapt Medical Simulator Assistance

Research team : VR4I -

In this work we introduce the combined use of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Medical Simulators. We propose to adapt medical simulator guides based on the mental activity measured by a BCI system. The aim of this system is to provide visual and haptic assistance only when the user’s brain activity reflects a high mental workload. This work paves the way to novel passive BCI applications such as medical training simulators based on passive BCI and “smart guides”.

European Research Council 2016

Fabien Lotte awarded an ERD Starting Grant


Fabien Lotte is a researcher at Inria’s Bordeaux centre. He works on brain-computer interfaces by modelling the learning processes. He has just been awarded an ERC Starting Grant, which will allow him to open up this still recent field of research to the human factor, an aspect that has been largely overlooked by the specialists and that could help improve the use of interfaces.

OpenViBE: The first French software programme enabling "action through thought"


Operating a computer by thought alone was unimaginable ten years ago, but this incredible feat is now possible. Financed by the ANR (the French national research agency), OpenViBE is the first French multi-partner project on brain-computer interfaces. With support from Inria (the French national institute for research in computer science and control) and Inserm (the French national institute of health and medical research), OpenViBE has successfully perfected a free software programme with highly promising applications.

Human-computer Interaction

Inria is presenting its works at the 2017 CHI conference 

Séverine Valerius - 9/05/2017

The POTIOC team from Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest center is presenting its Human-computer interaction (HCI) expertise at the 2017 annual CHI conference taking place this year in Denver, USA, from 6 to 11 May. Each year, this very prestigious and selective event rewards the best research carried out throughout the world in the field of HMI. An historic event in the field, this year it is focusing on the theme "Explore, Innovate, Inspire" and will bring together people from multiple disciplines and cultures in order to explore new ways to design, develop and assess methods and systems... Several Inria research teams, who have distinguished themselves as being among the best in the world in this domain, are taking part. Here is a close-up of the work carried out within Potioc, the Bordeaux-based team.

Inria Awards 2013

Anatole Lécuyer: Young researcher Inria - Académie des sciences award

Currently head of the HYBRID team, Anatole Lécuyer was recently awarded the lnria - Académie des Sciences (French Academy of Sciences) young researcher prize. As well as considering this reward a personal honour, he also views it as a form of recognition for his research fields, virtual reality and brain-computer interfaces, which are still relatively "young" and little-known.
