Component Type: Sensor (Subcategory: Bioelectric Measurement)
The Tobi TiC plugin allows obtaining data from a connection to the Tobi Framework (Tools for Brain Computer Interaction). Tobi defined standard for BCI interfaces, e.g. beteween classification and actuator modues. Tobi supports a wide range of biosignal and EEG acquisition devices. The TiC interface is dedicated to transfer classifier results to actuators. This plugin implements a simple TiC reader via a TCP socket. Up to 5 TOBI class labels can be defined which will be used to extract values from incoming TiC-compatible xml messages. These class labels and the sever socket which is openend by the plugin can be defined viy plugin properties.

TiC-compatible messages must be sent to the server port which is opened by the plugin.
