This project main goal is to provide an open source and low cost platform for "gesture to speech" for deaf people.
Deaf people still have communication difficulties nowadays, even if affordable technologies permits to assist them.
An assistive technology is a device that helps a person with hearing loss or a voice, speech, or language disorder to communicate.
With the development of digital and wireless technologies, more and more devices are becoming available to help people with hearing, voice, speech, and language disorders communicate more meaningfully and participate more fully in their daily lives.
Our CRI Lab Summer School team, "les INCAPTABLES" has decided to create a prototype of a connected glove in order to recognize gesture from hands signs langage and to translate it to pictures on a smart watch.
Emilie, Malèke, Julien are using their skills in Arduino, Android, Movuino project (from CRI), flexsensors in order to make this glove a reality.
Our first version of glove, "Back to the Senses" is able to recognize 4 signs, and transmit them by Wifi, and display them on a smart watch or a smart phone.
