Abstract: In this paper, we propose an enhanced classification technique using an unscented Kalman filter (UKF) for brain computer interface (BCI) signal processing. Since the UKF estimates the state of a nonlinear dynamic system and parameters for nonlinear system identification, the UKF can significantly improve the performance of classification in BCI systems. As a result, we confirm the performance improvement when using the UKF in motor imagery classification in terms of accuracy, Kappa value, and confidence interval.

Keywords: brain computer interface; BCI; unscented Kalman filter; UKF; classification; statistical signal processing.
