1. A fiber sensor system comprising:
a mobile detection device having;
a light source;
a light guide configured to guide a light from the light source, the light guide having a plurality of detection target configured to provide optical effect on the light in accordance with a bend state of the light guide;
a light detector configured to detect the light emitted from the light guide and provide information of the detected light; and
a first communication unit configured to transmit wirelessly the information of the detected light so as to eliminate a wire connection and to enable the mobile detection device to be operated wirelessly, and thereby eliminating a loss of a light and detecting a minute change to the light during an operation of the mobile detection device.
