Implantable brain machine interfaces (BMI) enable severely disabled people high-performance real-time robot control and communication, utilizing high-quality intracranial neural signals. Until now, we established ECoG-based robot control and communication. Also, we are developing a fully-implantable BMI device for long-term home-use with 24/7 supports. The next step is a clinical trial to confirm safety and efficacy of the implantable BMI and to obtain medical approval of the device. Performance of BMI-based voluntary control will be improved by recording with higher resolution and harmonized support by avatar-based autonomous control.
