*) 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.

Support categories: ‘Bugfixes’ means that the core development team has access to the physical device and may fix reported, related issues. There are generally no resources to reply to questions. ‘Yes’ means that there is some third party taking care of the driver. ‘Community’ indicates that the driver is a contribution and that the 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.

NeuroRT package drivers

OpenViBE 1.1.0 for Windows is shipped with an option to choose a free NeuroRT driver package from Mensia Technologies. This binary package provides the following drivers:

 

Manufacturer Amplifier Driver Name OS Status(*) Support
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.

Beta drivers

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.
