The robotics technology is expected to play an important role not only in industries, but also in medicine and welfare. An EMG-controlled artificial arm is one of the most important robotic systems for persons who lost their original arm by accident or disease. This paper presents a concept of the 3DOF intelligent artificial arm that activates the elbow flexion/extension motion, forearm pronation/supination motion, and hand open/close motion based on EMG signals of the user's remained active muscles.
