Abstract: Recent progress in manufacturing techniques for optical fibers has been instrumental in the construction of mobile communication systems using fiber optical data link (FODL) bobbins that have extremely fine and lightweight optical fibers of high tensile strength and low transmission loss capable of being wound for a long distance data link. To construct such mobile communication systems using this optical fiber, reliable motion analysis of the unwinding of the optical fiber from the FODL bobbin is essential. A…
