Many people in their work environment are interested and focused on their work, and they do not want to interrupt their work progress by doing simple office tasks like Increasing or decreasing the light brightness in the office or the temperature of the office. In addition, a more important issue is to consider cases where some of people have major disabilities in their bodies that prevent them from doing that. In this situation, Brain Signals for Smart Offices (BSSO) is considered to be a preferable solution.
