Biomedical signal lately have been a hot topic for researchers, as many journals and books related to it have been publish. In this paper, the control strategy to help quadriplegic patient using Brain Computer Interface (BCI) on basis of Electroencephalography (EEG) signal was used. BCI is a technology that obtain user's thought to control a machine or device. This technology has enabled people with quadriplegia or in other words a person who had lost the capability of his four limbs to move by himself again. Within the past years, many researchers have come out with a new method and investigation to develop a machine that can fulfill the objective for quadriplegic patient to move again. Besides that, due to the development of bio-medical and healthcare application, there are several ways that can be used to extract signal from the brain. One of them is by using EEG signal. This research is carried out in order to detect the brain signal to controlling the movement of the wheelchair by using a single channel EEG headset. A group of 5 healthy people was chosen in order to determine performance of the machine during dynamic focusing activity such as the intention to move a wheelchair and stopping it. A neural network classifier was then used to classify the signal based on major EEG signal ranges. As a conclusion, a good neural network configuration and a decent method of extracting EEG signal will lead to give a command to control robotic wheelchair.
