This article presents a scientific research aiming the development of a natural interface for the control of robotic structures. The purpose of this interface is to be used as a tool for the social integration of people with special needs. On studies we used (a) a body motion sensor; (b) an arm robot mechanical structure; and (c) a software for communication between the motion sensor and the robot arm. Experiments were performed to verify the effectiveness of this interface, to identify possible failures, and implement improvements. The main results indicated that the interface works satisfactorily.
