Industrial environments with potentially toxic atmospheres such as research laboratories or test centers are at increased risk for human operator health, especially due to the very short time they need to act to prevent fatal events at work place. In this paper we propose a solution with industrial applicability based on human arm modelling and simulation that is capable of replacing human operator’s direct intervention in manipulating substances that can generate toxic vapors that affect air quality or contain substances with high epidemiological risk, or others that, in case of inappropriately manipulated, can produce potentially explosive situations. Based on an EEG-EMG solution, the human operator can control the human artificial arm remotely from a safety location only by using own electrical signals generated by the brain and the neurons network.
