Does spontaneous motion lead to intuitive Body-Machine Interfaces? A fitness study of different body segments for wearable telerobotics [article]

Matteo Macchini, Jan Frogg, Fabrizio Schiano, Dario Floreano
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We show through a user study that selecting the body segment for a BoMI based on spontaneous motion can lead to sub-optimal performance.  ...  In this study, we compare a set of BoMIs based on different body segments to investigate this aspect.  ...  efficiency of wearable telerobotic interfaces and could facilitate their implementation for future applications.  ...
