Abstract

Nowadays, the detection of human fatigue is a major concern in society, industry, road safety and transportation research, due to its effect on human performance while performing tasks. The two main objectives of this review are to extract and understand better the electromyography (EMG) procedure and to identify any pertinent issues related to EMG assessment. Eleven relevant studies were presented in this review paper, chosen from several electronic databases. This review paper describes the study design of EMG, its analysis and findings. This review has provided an insight of EMG assessment for future study, particularly on the arrangement of the study design including the muscle part and setting procedure.
