This paper presents a new human-machine interaction (HMI) method designed for hands-free control of electric wheelchairs. Both forehead electromyography (EMG) signals and color face image information is jointly used to identify winking and jaw clenching movements. Five winking and jaw clenching movement patterns are selected and classified, mapping into five control commands to drive a simulated wheelchair in an office environment. Six subjects participated in the experiments and the result shows that this new control method can work well and reliably. © 2010 IEEE.
