The Glove Project

The glove project was developed in our lab by a team of student apprentices using our lab facilities and our guidance. We were intrigued and both interested by their idea and offered to support the project.

The Concept

The Proof of Concept setup consists of :
  • A glove with lots of sensors
  • A wearable watch like interface board
  • A hand shaped display board (evaluation jig) for testing/debugging of the glove.
  • A Microprocessor interface for grabbing data from glove for processing for respective application.
  • A Software on a Laptop that interprets the sign and speaks out!


Different parts of the Glove project POC


Detects all joints of fingers in open position


When all joints of fingers are closed...

This POC proved that using low-cost sensors it is possible to pick up binary signals from finger joints - whether the joint is open or folded - which can be interpreted for decoding sign language from a person wearing the glove in real time.

Applications

Although the POC was developed for interpreting sign language by a computing device, the potential of this Glove concept if developed into a product is enormous. It can find applications also in:
  • Gesture sensing device?
  • Useful Input device for computing applications (PC/Mobile)?
  • Diagnostic device in medical applications?
