The Neurotechnologies for Brain-Machine Interfacing Industry Connections was created to provide a place for collaboration to foster the development of standards for BMI/BCI-related neurotechnology. The goal of this effort is to bring together diverse stakeholders across neurotechnologies, research institutions, industry and government agencies to identify and address gaps in the existing standards for Brain-Machine Interfacing (BMI)/Brain Computer Interface (BCI) based solutions.
The Neurotechnologies for Brain-Machine Interface Standards Roadmap was released in February 2020. This roadmap provides an overview of the existing and developing standards in the field of neurotechnologies for brain-machine interfacing. The focus is on systems that provide a closed-loop interaction with artificial devices based on information extracted from measurements of activity in the nervous system. The document also includes recommendations on the priorities for standardization.
The following Standard Projects are active in the development of brain-related standards.
- IEEE P2725.1: Standard for Microwave Structural, Vascular or Functional Medical Imaging Device Safety
- IEEE P2794: Reporting of In Vivo Neural Interface Research
- IEEE P2731: Standard for a Unified Terminology for Brain-Computer Interfaces
