1) NOTE about Status: If a driver has been marked as new, unknown or unstable, it can just mean that the core development team has no access to the hardware to test it in practice and that there has not been sufficient community feedback to give it some other status. However, the driver can still be working perfectly.
2) NOTE about Support: Yes means that the driver contributor is taking care of the driver and may answer questions related to the driver. Bugfixes means that the core development team has access to the physical device and may fix reported, related issues. The core team has generally no resources to reply to questions. Community indicates that the driver contributor may be able answer related questions, if time permits. Generally the community and the non-supported drivers are provided as-is, only tested to compile by the OpenViBE core development team. You can always try to post a question about them on the forum, nevertheless.
NeuroRT package drivers
OpenViBE 1.1.0 and later come bundled with a free NeuroRT driver package from Mensia Technologies. These closed source drivers do not reveal how the communication between the server and the manufacturer APIs is carried out. The NeuroRT driver package provides the following drivers:
|Brain Rhythm||BR8||NeuroRT Collection: Brain Rhythm 8||Stable||Yes, contact Mensia Technologies|
|Mensia||Simulator||NeuroRT Collection: Simulator||Stable||Yes, contact Mensia Technologies|
|SmartBCI||SmartBCI||NeuroRT Collection: SmartBCI||Stable||Yes, contact Mensia Technologies|
|Wearable Sensing||Dry Sensor Interface: 7, 7 Flex, 7 Mini, 24||NeuroRT Collection: Wearable Sensing DSI||Stable||Yes, contact Mensia Technologies|
Driver not in list?
We have currently no plans to develop additional drivers or support new hardware, but we are always happy to consider driver contributions for inclusion. There are various tutorials to help in this. The source codes of the existing drivers can also be used as a starting point.
These drivers are currently being integrated or do not comply with our standards. Some of them can be found in the branches of the old SVN repository (see here), or in its deprecated branches folder (e.g. checkout the SVN at address svn://scm.gforge.inria.fr/svn/openvibe/deprecated-branches). It may require a significant amount of work to get the beta drivers work with newer OpenViBE source code.

This driver has been moved to the deprecated branches SVN folder
