Controlling a Robot Using a Wearable Device (MYO)

Authors: Mithileysh Sathiyanarayanan, Tobias Mulling, Bushra Nazir

There is a huge demand for military robots in almost all the countries which comes under the field of human computer interaction and artificial intelligence. There are many different ways of operating a robot: self controlled, automatic controlled etc. Also, gesture controlled operation mode is on the rise. This acted as our motivation to develop a gesture controlled robot using MYO armband. The word ‘MYO’ has created a buzz in the technological world by its astonishing features and its utility in various fields. Its introduction as a armband that can wrap around our arm to control robots with our movements and gestures has opened new wide doors of its experimentation with robotics. This independently working gesture recognition system does not rely on any external sensors (motion capturing system) as it has its sensors embedded in itself which recognizes the gesture commands and acts accordingly. This armband can be worn by soldiers to operate robots to fight against enemies. This work in progress paper illustrates an existing robot designed by us, which can be controlled by hand gestures using a wearable device called as MYO. We would like to investigate more on this and implement, such that the robot can be interfaced with a MYO armband for a successful control.
