HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACE TO CONTROL A ROBOT WITH THE NINTENDO WII REMOTE

Daniel Coutinho, Armando Sousa, Luís Paulo Reis

Abstract

This paper intends to demonstrate the development of and easy-to-use local human-machine interface that would allow any user to control all kinds of service robots intuitively. This interface is based on the Nintedo Wii remote controller and consists of three operating modes: a steering wheel, an infra-red monitor and a movement identifier. These modes were tested on a cleaning robot and they led to very satisfactory results, proving that the Wiimote is an inexpensive and interesting way of making this kind of interfaces.
