…obtain ERPs with SMARTING?
The ERP experiments can be performed on both Smarting Streamer on PC and Smarting Android app (see the download section above). Smarting software (both on PC and Adnroid) receives UDP triggers and are compatible with the labstreamlayer (LSL) platform.
The following stimuli presentation software are compatible with SMARTING:
Any other software that supports the LSL platform can also be used.
…couple SMARTING device with other sensors?
SMARTING can be coupled with the devices that support the LSL protocol. More on LSL can be found here. The list of readily available software and devices, for streaming the data over the LSL protocol can be found here.
Please note that LSL is an open source SDK, and therefore it is possible to create an LSL-based protocol for any sensor that comes with an open SDK.

…set the drift level in OpenVibe
The best way to set the allow the drift level is to set it to maximum. This is simply because the Bluetooth communication can become unstable, meaning it is late, but with no loss of data. Therefore, the recommended setting is to set the “Drift Tolerance (ms)” to 100, and “Jitter Estimation Count for Drift” to 1000.

…Lost data packages – I am loosing data frequently
…BlueSoleil Bluetooth license
The BlueSoleil software is shipped on the mBrainTrain USB dongle within the SMARTING package. The license is contained in the BlueSoleil bluetooth dongle that is also sent with the SMARTING package. However, the software can also be downloaded from the BlueSoleil website and the price of the license is $27.99
…connecting SMARTING with my PC/Android
In case of PC Streamer
In case of Android app
…connecting Smarting in Bluesoleil software on Windows 10
If the Bluesoleil application is installed, but Smarting device only says “connecting” and nothing seems to happen, try the following.
Go to Device Manager and disable Bluetooth driver altogether. Restart the computer, go straight back to Bluesoleil application and try pairing the Smarting device again.
What platforms are supported by SMARTING?
SMARTING is supported by Windows OS (Starting with Windows 7) and Android platform.
What is content of SMARTING package and can it be changed?
The regular SMARTING package contains the wireless amplifier, 24ch electrode EasyCap recording cap, starter kit including the electrolyte gel, mobile phone and the accompanying PC and Android software. The package can be modified during the ordering process. For any additional questions, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.
What are the supported data formats?
The supported data formats are .XDF and .BDF. Also .GDF and .EDF file formats are supported when using SMARTING via OpenVibe platform.
Can I rely only on mobile phone to perform recordings and what are the limitations?
SMARTING EEG recordings can be performed by solely using an Android based smartphone, on which the ERP experiments can be performed as well. However, if the synchronization with the other sensors is needed, it is possible to stream the EEG data from the smartphone to the recording PC, where the synchronization with the other sensors is possible.
Is it possible to perform ERP studies with SMARTING?
Yes, it is possible to perform the ERP studies on both the PC and Android based platform.
What is the jitter and delay of the SMARTING device?
SMARTING precision is below its sampling rate (2ms) – tested with Neurobs® Presentation software. However, depending on the platform and the stimulation software the delay and jitter values can vary. The jitter values may go up to 6ms, while the delay values for Android OS. An important notice is that it is possible to measure the delay values for each cellphone, and this delay value is constant for all recordings for that device.
Can I make precise and synchronous recordings with SMARTING?
Yes, precise and synchronous recordings are possible in all supported data formats (see above). Important note is that SMARTING supports the Lab Streaming Layer (LSL), which enables the synchronous recordings with smarting and various other sensors (which are supported by the LSL protocol), with the millisecond precision.
What level of knowledge do I need to have in order to use SMARTING?
SMARTING is very easy to use, and it does not require the high level of technical knowledge.
What is the noise level and signal quality of SMARTING device?
The Input Referred Noise of SMARTING device is 1 µV.
Can I test (and how) if device is properly connected without actually mounting the EEG cap?
Yes, the connection can be tested on both the Android and PC application, by selecting the test signal from the home menu and start streaming the signal. If the SMARTING is properly connected, the test signal will show on the display after selecting the signal show option.
Can I monitor the impedance level continuously?
In order to monitor the impedance values continuously, one can select the measure impedance option on the main window of SMARTING streamer on the PC, or by enabling impedances on the Android application (from settings window). The impedance values are color coded in the main window, while in the signal show window; the color coded values of the impedances are placed next to the electrode names on the far left side of the signal show window.
Where can I find the newest software updates and user manual?
The newest software and user manual updates can be found here.
Can I program my own applications on phone?
We provide the SDK for the users that want to create a customized application.
What is the unit and the scale of signals?
Can I see the impedance values?
Yes, you can always check the impedance values. In SMARTING streamer, the impedances are shown after checking the “Measure Impedance” checkbox. In Android app, the impedances are automatically shown, when the app is started. The impedances are color coded, and the limits can be changed within the software. Check the user manual for more information.
What are the payment methods for SMARTING?
For the time being, mBrainTrain is only receiving wire Bank Transfers for its product/services. Please use only the banking data (IBAN, SWIFT Code etc) provided in the header section of the official invoicing material issued by mBrainTrain LLC.

What are delivery practices for EasyCap’s Products and other EEG consumables?
EasyCap GmbH is the official partner of mBrainTrain LLC providing EEG Caps (specially made for SMARTING device) and other related consumables (Cotton Swabs, Degreasers, Pre-Filled Syringes, Cleaning Equipment etc). These products are being sent away directly from Germany to the end user’s address for the sake of fast and economic delivery. Even though the products are being followed with customs/commercial invoicing and delivery notes, charges for EasyCap products are supposed to be paid directly to mBrainTrain LLC through official incorporated invoicing, and not to EasyCap GmbH.
What channels do you use to physically deliver SMARTING?
mBrainTrain has the official contract with DHL International for Export and Import Services, and in that sense, our ordinary practices include delivery via DHL.
