Many research on how the human brain works have been done in the last century. The use of electroencephalogram signal generated from quantifying the brainwave has been developed in many areas including the development of brain-computer interface (BCI) concept. One type of BCI that interesting for the future use is motor imagery (MI) based-BCI which only requiring imagination of a person to control an object. This study proposed a feature extraction in eight different channels using discrete wavelet (DWT) coefficients. The wavelet coefficient is transformed to a frequency domain using discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and then average power spectrum is calculated. Level 5 of detail component of the DWT is chosen because, from 512Hz sampling frequency (8 - 16Hz), it resembles mu rhythm of brain wave (8 - 12Hz) which affected from motor imagery activity. The classification of three classes, which are the imagination of right body movement, left the movement, and random word using multiclass support vector machine (SVM) shows a promising result with a sensitivity of 96.88%, 86.12% and 52.78% from three different subjects.
