Abstract—In this paper, a proposed design of 5 DOF arm robot is presented; each of the arm’s joints will be generated by the corresponding human arm’s joints . The paper will present a full design of a robot arm that mimics the human arm motion. Also, a graphical simulator will be designed to mimic the human arm simultaneously with the mechanical robot arm. Both of the arms are controlled using LabVIEW and data acquisition card NI-PCI 6024E. For control applications, LabVIEW Real-Time provide a single software development tool that can implement the functions to PC-based control systems, thus acting as a programmable automation controller.
