A progress report is presented of a project directed toward the evaluation and implementation of man-machine command and control procedures that incorporate neuroelectric signals directly derived from the brain. This document first reports on the current state of the project. A first milestone has been reached one such man-machine loop has been operating for several months at nearly operational performance levels. In the communication protocol of this MASTER-ROBOT team, the computer robot executes commands encoded in the masters occipital brain waves as SINGLE OPOCH VISUAL EVOKED RESPONSES. To send a command the master visually selects the corresponding command symbol from a displayed set. Symbol pattern and color have been used in the command alphabet.
