BrainFlow Dummy Boards

Playback File Board

This board playbacks files recorded using other BrainFlow boards.

It allows you to test signal processing algorithms on real data without device.

To create such board you need to specify the following board ID and fields of BrainFlowInputParams object:

  • BoardIds.PLAYBACK_FILE_BOARD

  • master_board, it should contain board ID of the device used to create playback files

  • file, it should contain full path to recorded file

  • optional: file_aux, use it if your master board has auxiliary preset

  • optional: file_anc, use it if your master board has ancillary preset

Initialization Example:

params = BrainFlowInputParams()
params.file = "streamer_default.csv"
params.file_aux = "streamer_aux.csv"
params.master_board = BoardIds.SYNTHETIC_BOARD
board = BoardShim(BoardIds.PLAYBACK_FILE_BOARD, params)

Supported platforms:

  • Windows >= 8.1

  • Linux

  • MacOS

  • Devices like Raspberry Pi

By default it generates new timestamps and stops at the end of the file. You can override such behavior using commands:

board.config_board ("loopback_true")
board.config_board ("loopback_false")
board.config_board ("new_timestamps")
board.config_board ("old_timestamps")

In methods like:

get_eeg_channels (board_id)
get_emg_channels (board_id)
get_ecg_channels (board_id)
# .......

You need to use master board id instead Playback Board Id, because exact data format for playback board is controlled by master board as well as sampling rate.

Streaming Board

BrainFlow boards can stream data to different destinations like file, socket, etc directly from BrainFlow. This board acts like a consumer for data streamed from the main process.

To use it in the first process(master process, data provider) you should call:

# choose any valid multicast address(from "224.0.0.0" to "239.255.255.255") and port
add_streamer ("streaming_board://225.1.1.1:6677", BrainFlowPresets.DEFAULT_PRESET)

In the second process you shoud create Streaming board instance and this process will act as a data consumer.

To create such board you need to specify the following board ID and fields of BrainFlowInputParams object:

  • BoardIds.STREAMING_BOARD

  • ip_address, for example above it’s 225.1.1.1

  • ip_port, for example above it’s 6677

  • master_board, it should contain board ID of the device used to create playback files

  • optional: ip_address_aux, use it if your master board has auxiliary preset

  • optional: ip_port_aux, use it if your master board has auxiliary preset

  • optional: ip_address_anc, use it if your master board has ancillary preset

  • optional: ip_port_anc, use it if your master board has ancillary preset

Initialization Example:

params = BrainFlowInputParams()
params.ip_port = 6677
params.ip_port_aux = 6678
params.ip_address = "225.1.1.1"
params.ip_address_aux = "225.1.1.1"
params.master_board = BoardIds.SYNTHETIC_BOARD
board = BoardShim(BoardIds.STREAMING_BOARD, params)

Supported platforms:

  • Windows >= 8.1

  • Linux

  • MacOS

  • Devices like Raspberry Pi

  • Android

In methods like:

get_eeg_channels (board_id)
get_emg_channels (board_id)
get_ecg_channels (board_id)
# .......

You need to use master board id instead Streaming Board Id, because exact data format for streaming board is controlled by master board as well as sampling rate.

If you have problems on Windows try to disable virtual box network adapter and firewall. More info can be found here.

On Linux systems you may need to install libdbus and we recommend to compile BrainFlow from the source code:

sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-dev # for ubuntu
sudo yum install dbus-devel # for centos
python3 tools/build.py --ble # to compile

To create such board you need to specify the following board ID and fields of BrainFlowInputParams object:

  • BoardIds.BRAINALIVE_BOARD

  • optional: mac_address, mac address of the device to connect

  • optional: serial_number, device name

Initialization Example:

params = BrainFlowInputParams()
board = BoardShim(BoardIds.BRAINALIVE_BOARD, params)

Supported platforms:

  • Windows 10.0.19041.0+

  • MacOS 10.15+

  • Linux, compilation from source code probably will be needed

  • Devices like Raspberry Pi

You need to pair your device first.

To create such board you need to specify the following board ID and fields of BrainFlowInputParams object:

  • BoardIds.EXPLORE_4_CHAN_BOARD

  • mac_address, it’s optional for some OSes. Windows and MacOS can autodiscover paired devices, Linux cannot

Initialization Example:

params = BrainFlowInputParams()
params.mac_address = "F4:0E:11:75:76:78"
board = BoardShim(BoardIds.EXPLORE_4_CHAN_BOARD, params)

Supported platforms:

  • Windows

  • Linux

  • MacOS

  • Devices like Raspberry Pi

On Linux in order to compile and use it you may need to install :code:`libbluetooth-dev` for Debian like systems from :code:`apt-get` and :code:`bluez-libs-devel` for Fedora like systems from :code:`dnf`.

Available BrainFlow Presets:

  • BrainFlowPresets.DEFAULT_PRESET, it contains EEG data

  • BrainFlowPresets.AUXILIARY_PRESET, it contains Gyro and Accel data

  • BrainFlowPresets.ANCILLARY_PRESET, it contains battery and temperature data

Steps to find MAC address:

  • On Windows: open device manager, navigate to explore device, click properties, details, and select Bluetooth Address

  • On Linux: install bluez-utils and run bluetoothctl paired-devices

  • On MacOS: run system_profiler SPBluetoothDataType

Steps to connect:

  • Enable device and Pair it with your laptop using bluetooth settings

  • Ensure that blue LED is blinking before calling board.prepare_session()

  • If you see green LED probably you need to reboot a devce
