Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) applications, which is a communication system that allows creating interfaces between the human brain and artificial devices, offers preferable options for people with various muscle, nerve and vision diseases, as well as contributing to the development of technological tools. In this study; with a pattern recognition approach based on mental tasks, a BCI application has been carried out with a laser distance measurement system that does not need to work all the time for individuals with muscle, nerve and visual diseases. This application has provided the control of 2 DC motors representing wheelchair and robotic arm. The results obtained with this application using the Emotiv Epoc+ device show that the control of peripheral units can be achieved with a few commands using the technologies adopted in this study. In addition, the advantages/disadvantages of the application are discussed.
