Researchers develop a robotic sign language interpreter
A team of researchers are developing a low-cost robotic sign language interpreter that can translate text into sign language.
The first version of robot hand called Project Aslan, is mostly 3D printed and has the ability to translate text into finger-spelling gestures.
Finger-spelling gesture means each individual letter is communicated through a separate gesture.
The researchers aim to develop a two-armed robot with an expressive face, body posture and hand gestures so that it can translate text or spoken words into sign language in a better way.
The idea is to solve the communication gap between the hearing and deaf communities.
