Smart gloves give voice to the visually impaired
Sign language helps people with hearing impairments communicate with each other but it does not help them communicate with those that don't understand it.
Now, using a pair of smart gloves, sign language movements can be interpreted and converted into verbal language. This gives users a voice which can be understood by all.
This solution has been developed by a Chinese company called Yingmi Technology.
The gloves have a range of sensors that can detect movement and transmit the data via bluetooth to a computer which studies the movements.
The system can identify many gestures and signs, and then match them to a database of sign languages.
Once matched, the computer will convert the gestures into a visual or audio output.
