Teleoperation of a robot arm working in hazardous environments has been studied in the field of defense and security. A master system is an essential part that plays an important role in the teleoperation. We developed a master system, which is an essential part in the teleoperation, so that it can operate the slave robot arm intuitively and has excellent mobility and portability compared to conventional master systems. The master system adopted a Stewart platform to minimize the size and weight, and the legs of the Stewart platform are composed of wires to improve the operation range of the system. The experimental validation of the developed master system is conducted with a commercial IMU, and the experimental results show that the proposed master system can perform reliable and dexterous teleoperation.
