This study aims to clarify the strategy of human for the finger-arm coordinated motion, and to adapt the results to the planning of anthropomorphic robots. Human motion in violin playing has been analyzed. In this paper, the results of human motion analysis and the method for planning of anthropomorphic robots based on the results is described.
