Wireless teleoperation of an industrial robot by using myo arm band
MetadataShow full item record
In this work, wireless control of a 6-degree-of-freedom industrial robot by using Myo armband to carry out pick and place task is aimed. Myo armband has built in sensors such as gyroscope and electromyography sensors. The gesture and motion of human arm is detected and the robot is remotely manipulated. The movement of robot achieved by using measured roll, pitch and yaw angle of arm wearing Myo band. The control of robot gripper is achieved by sensing the opening and closing of the human hand. Bluetooth is used for the wireless communication between arm band and robot controller. It is observed that three axis position and gripper control of robot is successfully achieved. By using considered configuration, a pick and place operation is also successfully completed. The proposed configuration can be used in human-robot interaction and teleoperation studies.
