The paper presents a way to control drones using an electroencephalography (EEG) signal. Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems capture the brain activity of a user and allow the user to control an object. Developed initially for Military purposes BCI systems have quickly spread to other fields such as medicine, entertainment, and security. Drones, on the other hand, are quickly spreading in their functionality and uses ranging from kids toys to military surveillance, photography etc. A system was developed which controls a parrot mambo drone based on the user input taken using a Neuro sky Mind wave mobile headset. The system eliminates the need for a separate handheld controller or a voice-based controller thus can be used for various purposes like military surveillance, medical assistance or recreational activities.
