We are working on this project namely Hand talk: Interpreter for the Differently Abled that translates hand gestures into a particular message. Flex Sensors fixed with the glove pick up the gesture made by the individual and then with the help of Arduino, that analog input is converted into digital for various gestures. For every particular gesture there is specific digital output and that digital output for specific gesture is reserved for specific message. So, when the individuals do that particular gesture, the predefined message for that gesture is displayed on the LCD along with a beep (sound) and that specific message is also transmitted in the form of text or call with the help of GSM module to the various registered numbers.
For instance, if the patient perform a gesture of fist (most often we people form the fist in case of fear, emergency), there would be a message displayed on the LCD: “CRITICAL SITUATION” or “EMERGENCY” along with a beep and that particular message would also be transmitted in the form of text or call to the Doctor’s phone or the Relative’s one.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
