In this paper we present our bio-mimetic artificial arm and the simulation results on its low level control system. In accordance with the general view of the Biorobotics field we try to replicate the structure and the functionalities of the natural limb. The control system is organized in a hierarchical way, the low level control reproduces the human spinal reflexes and the high level control the circuits present in the cerebral motor cortex and the cerebellum. Simulation show how the system controls the single joint position reducing the stiffness during the movement.
