The BCI technology finds newer and newer implementations. Year by year, the number of publications in this field grows exponentially. This book attempts to describe the implementation of the brain-computer technology based on both STM32 and Arduino microcontrollers. In addition, the application of BCI technology in the field of intelligent houses, robotic lines as well as in the field of bionic prostheses was presented. One of the chapters of the monograph also discusses the issue of fMRI in the context of the possibility of analyzing images made as part of fMRI through solutions based on machine learning. A practical implementation of the TensorFlow framework was presented. The fMRI technique is also often implemented in BCI solutions. The conducted literature studies show that the technology of BCI is undoubtedly a technology of the future. However, there is a need for continuous development of biomedical signal processing methods in order to obtain the most efficient implementations in the case of non-invasive implementation of BCI technology based on EEG. The further development of BCI technology has a huge impact on the techniques of rehabilitation of people with disabilities. Nowadays, wheelchairs are being constructed, thanks to which a disabled person is physically able to direct his position in a certain direction and at a certain speed. Thanks to BCI, it is also possible to create an individual speech synthesizer, with the help of which a paralyzed person will be able to communicate with the outside world. New limb prostheses that will replace the lost locomotor system in almost one hundred percent are still being developed. Some prostheses are connected to the human nervous system, thanks to which they are able to send feedback to our brain about the shape, hardness and temperature of the object held in the artificial limb.
