An inter-personal shared body is an extended body that allows an avatar or robot to be controlled by multiple people. It is possible for operators to share control over the actions of the shared body. A shared body can be operated well when the same actions are performed by its operators. However, when their actions are not the same, we need to have an adaptive control method for the operators to maintain a sense of agency and ownership. In this study, we propose dynamic adjustment methods to control a shared body using EMG sensors and movements of the operators.
