Using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals to control intelligent wheelchairs is one of the new control methods for controlling intelligent wheelchairs. The most serious problem in the control process is recognition and classification of EEG signals, especially a variety of EEG signals. To improve the accuracy of EEG classification, improved-common spatial patterns and a deep-belief network algorithm are proposed and used for recognition and classification of EEG signals. A variety of different EEG signals were collected by an Emotiv EPOC+ EEG collector, and the characteristic signals were extracted by improved-common spatial patterns and identified and classified by a deep-belief network algorithm. Simulation results show that the classification accuracy of improved-common spatial patterns and the deep-belief network algorithm is higher than that of the traditional classification method, and a research perspective is provided for the classification of various EEG signals in the future.
