KurzfassungShape sensing based on FBG-optical Fibers is a current research topic of several working groups worldwide. The sensor is integrated into exible snake- like objects such as e.g. endoscopes or exible tubes to detect shape deformation. This way, the objects can be observed and tracked. Shapesensing supports naviga- tion of exible instruments. Currently, robotic systems consist of rigid joints only. Shapesensing provides the required information for automated control of the robot end-effector position and orientation in case additional exible joints are integrated into the robotic system. In this field of research, some fundamental aspects have already been researched and standard algorithms have been published. As the sensor technology is supposed to be used in medical technology, the requirements to- wards the sensor accuracy and robustness are demand- ing. Therefor, shapesensing still needs to be improved. At the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics - In- telligent Process Control and Robotics - Karlsruhe Insti- tute of Technology (IAR-IPR-KIT), fundamentally new sensor concepts are investigated. However, the testing of new algorithms and sensor designs is very costly as a high number of prototypes have to be build. To avoid these costs in time and money, the tests are planned based on pseudo measurement data. To efficiently gen- erate this kind of data, we developed a software. To use the software for research on shape sensors, the plausibil- ity of the produced pseudo data has to be evaluated. In this paper, the pseudo data is compared with real mea- sured data. Therefore, a test series is performed. The conclusion of the experiment is that noise still has to be considered to use the software for testing the robust- ness of shape sensors. However, the pseudo data and the measured values are similar to a sufficiently high level and therefore, the software can be use for research purposes.
