This paper focuses on the design of a prosthetic arm (a forearm robotic arm as well as a complete robotic arm) using switches and thoughts to control them. Switch control is done by embedding switches and toggling them accordingly. The key of thought control lies in the mapping of the EEG signal of the subject to the 2D cursor through signal processing to achieve the objective. We designed low cost and reliable devices for switch control as well as thought control. The advantages of the design are (i) cost effective and reliable (ii) attains a high-resolution EEG signal after transmission for signal processing. (iii) its universal usability irrespective of their age and social status. © 2013 IEEE.
