To help elderly and physically disabled people to become self-reliant in daily life such as at home or a health clinic, we have developed a network-type brain machine interface (BMI) system called “network BMI” to control real-world actuators like wheelchairs based on human intention measured by a portable brain measurement system. In this paper, we introduce the technologies for achieving the network BMI system to support activities of daily living.
