A robot today is used at various industries. At its early stage first the robot had only one function but today it has many functions and also the intelligent robot is manufactured. This paper presents a robot hand system that has the same motions as human. This robot hand is designed to have three fingers that are a thumb, a indexfinger and a middle finger. And the robot hand system adjusted to the motions of human fingers is designed by two detective methods of the motions of human fingers.
