This paper proposes novel algorithms for data-point and feature selection of motor imagery electroencephalographic signals for classifying motor plannings involved in car- driving including braking, acceleration, left steering control and right steering control. Variants of neural network classifiers such as linear support vector machines, and kernel-based support vector machines including radial basis function kernel, polynomial kernel and hyperbolic kernel have been applied to classify the various cognitive tasks. Experimental finding reveals that the proposed data-point and feature selection technique altogether provides better classification accuracies (more than 88) for all cognitive tasks in comparison with using factor analysis for data-point reduction and feature selection. It is also observed that power spectral density and discrete wavelet transform features are selected among the list of electroencephalographic features for holding the top two rank values for cognitive task classification during car-driving. From the experimental result, it is confirmed that support vector machines with radial basis function along with power spectral density outperforms the remaining feature-classifier pairs in terms of average classification accuracy. © 2015 IEEE.
