The paper tries to recognize EMG signals by using neural networks. The electrodes under the dry state are attached to wrists and then EMG is measured. These EMG signals are classified into seven categories, such as neutral, up and down, right and left, wrist to inside, wrist to outside by using a neural network. The neural network learns FFT spectra to classify them. Moreover, we perform the principal component analysis using the simple principal component analysis before we perform recognition experiments. It is shown that our approach is effective to classify the EMG signals by means of computer simulations.
