authors make use of publicly available BCI competition data sets with
118 channels (dense) and 22 channels (sparse) to validate whether the
algorithm is invariant to the number
of channels being used. The proposed
method results in better accuracy of
classifying the movement imagination between the right hand and left
hand compared with state-of-the-art
methods, with a significant reduction
in the number of channels.
Team from Delft University of
Technology Wins the Award
for Best Oral Presentation
and Paper
The paper "Ecological Interface
Design: Control Space Robustness
in Future Trajectory-Based Air Traffic Control Decision Support" (by
Rolf Klomp, coauthored with Clark
Borst and Gesa Praetorius) won the
award for best oral presentation and
paper. This work was co-financed by
EUROCONTROL acting on behalf of
the SESAR Joint Undertaking and
the European Union as part of Work
Package E (Project C-SHARE: Joint
Air Traffic Management Cognition
Through Shared Representations) in
the SESAR Program.
Abstract
The ongoing growth of air traffic
worldwide is foreseen to exceed the
capacity limits of the current air traffic management (ATM) system within
the coming decades. To facilitate this
increasing demand, two large-scale
