AVR based Robotic Arm for Speech Impaired People

Authors(2) :-Anagha Jadhav, Mandar Joshi

Communication is the most important part of human life. Deaf and dump people face many problems while communicating with the normal people. They interact with help of sign language, but these sign language is not understood by the common people. speech impaired people experiences many challenges while communicating. Solution to this problem is provided in this paper. we proposed a system which uses flex sensor and accelerometer to sense the hand gesture. Indian sign language is used for recognizing the words. The sensors are placed on the data gloves. The signals are processed using AVR controller, which are play backed in form of voice using play back voice module. Additionally a feature of wireless robotic ARM is also provided.
