Abstract: This paper describes a wearable master device for the persons whose arms are disabled. Optical fiber curvature sensors measure 2-DOF human shoulder motions by means of a calibration and mapping method. Experimental results prove efficiency of the sensors and the use of the device by the person to control a robot. (CIRRIE Abstract)
