Engineering students create robot arm that can interpret sign language
A team of engineering students have created a robotic arm that can translate speech into sign language.
The robotic arm is a design known as the “Project Aslan” and is an inexpensive humanoid robot that translates speech into sign language and is a huge boon for people with hearing and speech impairments considering the shortage of sign language interpreters in the world.
Aslan stands for “Antwerp’s Sign Language Actuating Node” and is the creation of three students at the University of Antwerp in Belgium.
The team hopes to break the barriers of communication hearing and the deaf people.
The robotic arm can act as a sign language interpreter when a deaf person needs to communicate with people who do not understand sign language.
The arm has been created with the help of 3D printing technology it can be created at low cost in more than 140 countries that have access to the technology.
