Real Time Control of Robotic Arm Using Electromyogram (EMG) Signals

Shital B. Sonone [2] | G. D. Dalvi [8]


Abstract: Nowadays, the rate of disabled and the people who find difficulties in using their limbs due to age are increasing. A human-assisting robot is a better option for them to overcome this problem. An Electromygraphy (EMG) is a physiological signal that is produced due to the electrical activity when muscle contracts. These signals can be used as control signals for serving the robot. In this project, a robotic arm is controlled using the EMG signals acquired from the forearm of the user. The proposed interface can be used to control a pick and place robotic arm in real time. EMG signals are acquired from the forearm of the user with the help of surface electrodes attached to the users skin, which avoids bulky interface sensors. Moreover, it is found as the proposed system is robust to muscle fatigue or adjustments of contraction level.
