SmartphoneBrainScanner2 is a framework for building cross-platform real-time EEG applications. Originally developed at Technical University of Denmark for collecting and analyzing signals from Emotiv EPOC headset, its extensible architecture allows working with various EEG systems and multiple platforms.
A placeholder repository for the moment we leave code.goole.

# Cross Platform
SmartphoneBrainScanner2 is written in [Qt](, a C++ framework offering the power of the native development and unified support for multiple platforms. Plus the UI can be created in QML, high-level declarative UI framework.
SBS2 can be compiled for every platform supporting Qt 4, including Linux, OSX, Windows, Android, Maemo 5, MeeGo. Although not yet attempted, it should also work on iOS and BlackBerry OS.
# Advanced EEG
SmartphoneBrainScanner2 contains state-of-the-art techniques for working with multi-channel EEG signal in real-time, most notably source reconstruction methods with online adaptation to the noise level. Current implemented source reconstruction approaches cover the minimum-norm and low resolution tomography (LORETA) methods formulated in a Bayesian framework using a expectation-maximization scheme for hyperparameter estimation.
The SBS2 source reconstruction is realized using a pre-build forward model connecting the cortical surface with the electrodes at the scalp. The current forward model provided with the software is a 3-spheres model obtained from the Matlab toolbox SPM8 using coarse spatial resolution and with sensor positions in accordance with the Emotiv EPOC system.
Besides, source reconstruction methods, additional machine learning methods such as independent component analysis (ICA), common spatial patterns (CSP), and Bayesian classifiers are continuously added.
# New Approach
Real-time EEG doesn't have to happen in the lab! Consumer-grade and inexpensive research neuroheadsets allow for portability, delivering high-quality EEG signal. SmartphoneBrainScanner2 apps can be developed just like any other apps, featuring reach interface, connectivity, etc. Go, create!
