People with movement disabilities will not be able to move around as conveniently and easily as other people. One of the solutions that can help them is assistive technology based on Electroencephalography (EEG) signals. Brain Computer Interface (BCI) systems record EEG signals and perform interpretations that can capture the “thoughts” of their users. Two possible application domains are mobility and emotion detection. Besides this, it is also essential to develop these assistive technologies to be unobtrusive and intuitive to use. Therefore, the authors envision the use of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) EEG devices as a feasible and affordable solution. In this chapter, recent work, which utilises COTS EGG-based devices to provide solutions for the two selected application domains, is presented and discussed.
