Abstract: The development of wireless sensing control unit operation is base on wearable inertial sensors. Inertial sensors are of tri axial accelerometer and MEMS. It extends to the control of an anthropomorphic robotic arm. Accelerometers used to measure the orientation and angular velocity of the lower arm. The data processing has been carried out on low cost micro controllers. The movement of the user arm was mimicked by the anthropomorphic robotic arm. The orientation of the control unit is tracked and displayed using MATLAB. Applications include industrial operation, remote operation in hazardous area, medicine and undersea recovery.
