Abstract

This paper presents a low-cost wireless sign language translator for interpreting and having a conversation between deft and non-deft persons. The system is a glove-like one with sensors embedded in every finger of the glove as to fusion the information from multiple sources and accurately providing an output of the sign language. The paper presents the hardware modules and the software workflows that were used to implement the system and it shows a first prototype of the system. The achieved accuracy, in terms of sign detection, is around 85%.
