Electroencephalography (EEG) can be used as an
indicator of fatigue. Several studies have shown that
slow wave brain activities, delta (0-4 Hz) and theta (4-
8 Hz), increase as an individual becomes fatigued,
while the fast brain activities, alpha (8-13 Hz) and beta
(13-35 Hz), decrease. However, an EEG is a complex
piece of equipment that is generally used in laboratory
based studies. In order to develop a fatigue
countermeasure device for train drivers using EEG,
there is a need for a simple and wireless EEG monitor.
This paper explains the development of a single
channel wireless EEG device.
