INFORMATICS SYSTEM FOR CONCENTRATION STATE ANALYSIS ON THE BASIS OF A DEVICE OPERATING IN THE BRAIN – COMPUTER INTERFACE TECHNOLOGY


Abstract

The informatics system designed for the needs of the workgroup working at the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Sciences of Opole University of Technology consisting of two applications, of which one is currently the most popular operating system in smart phones was described in the article. The objective of operation of the mobile application is connection of functionality of a device for electroencephalographic measurements with a daily used mobile phone. Thanks to applied connection in the form of an application it is possible to verify the concentration state of the particular person during execution of the particular action with the special consideration to the tasks, which require high concentration. Thanks to the elaborated mobile application we are able to determine the most effective daytime for learning and to draw the characteristics of the concentration loss time. The second application in the system is used as the synchronization server.
