Abstract

This paper discusses the application of myoelectric signals to control electronic devices aiming the development of a digital controlling interface with Myo Gesture Control Armband System. Through this interface it is possible to control the movement of a robot and its interaction with the environment, in this case the robot being PeopleBot, a robot designed for home necessities. Thus, allowing an assessment on the operation of controlling devices with myoelectric signals and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the advantages and disadvantages of working with this technology are discussed.
