SignAloud, il guanto che traduce la lingua dei segni

Si chiama SignAloud ed è in grado di tradurre istantaneamente in testo scritto o audio vocale la lingua dei segni.

Il dispositivo è stato inventato da Navid Azodi e Thomas Pryor, due studenti dell’Università di Washington, iscritti rispettivamente a economia aziendale-aerospaziale e ingegneria astronautica. Il guanto, che abbatte le barriere di comunicazione per i non udenti, si è aggiudicato il Lemelson-MIT Student Prize: un premio da 10mila dollari.

Come funziona

Grazie a speciali sensori, SignAloud è in grado di registrare i movimenti di mani e dita e di inviarli in modalità wireless ad un computer centrale. Questo analizza i dati e restituisce la traduzione del gesto nella parola o nella frase corrispondente nella lingua dei segni.

«I dispositivi di traduzione del linguaggio dei segni esistenti non sono pratici per l’uso quotidiano. Alcuni usano il video, altri utilizzano sensori che coprono tutto il braccio o il corpo dell’utilizzatore – spiegano gli inventori di SignAloud – I nostri guanti sono leggeri, compatti e abbastanza ergonomici da poter essere utilizzati come accessorio di tutti i giorni, simile a un apparecchio acustico o alle lenti a contatto».

Una vera e propria rivoluzione per i non udenti che, grazie al nuovo dispositivo, potranno parlare con chiunque senza il bisogno di ulteriori traduttori.

«L’idea inizialmente è venuta fuori dal nostro comune interesse per le invenzioni e il problem solving – ha detto Azodi – Ma siamo convinti che la comunicazione sia un diritto umano fondamentale e abbiamo deciso di renderla accessibile a un pubblico più vasto».

  14. I think that what you wrote made a ton of sense. However, think about this,
    what if you composed a catchier title? I am not saying your content isn’t good.,
    but suppose you added a headline to possibly grab people’s
    attention? I mean SignAloud, il guanto che traduce la lingua dei segni – Starthink Magazine is kinda vanilla.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they write article titles to get people to click.

    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a
    little livelier.

    اتوماتیک تعمیر در اتوماتیک تعمیر جک پارکینگی

    جک درب پارکینگ از قسمت‌های متعدد
    الکتریکی و مکانیکی تشکیل شده است و ساختار
    نسبتا پیچیده‌ای دارد.
    به‌طور ساده، این جک دستور حرکت را از
    طریق ریموت‌کنترل یا کلید برق دریافت
    کرده و با به‌حرکت در‌آوردن موتور و سپس قطعات
    مکانیکی خود مانند انواع بازوها، نیروی
    لازم برای حرکت درب اتوماتیک را
    فراهم می‌کند. جک درب اتوماتیک بر روی انواع
    درب‌ها اعم از لولایی، کشویی، کرکره‌ای و غیره نصب می‌شود.
    جک پارکینگی بر حسب نوع تکنولوژی استفاده شده
    در آن یه دو نوع جک درب پارکینگ الکترومکانیکی و
    جک پارکینگ هیدرولیکی تقسیم بندی می شود .

    هر کدام از انواع جک‌ های پارکینگ به دلیل عملکرد و کارکرد متفاوتشان نیاز به اقدامات متفاوتی
    برای عیب یابی و تعمیر دارند. در جک پارکینگ
    الکترومکانیکی, اصطکاک ایجاد شده میان چرخ دنده‌ ها و میل
    ماردون موجب ایجاد فشار مضاعف روی درب در زمان باز و بسته
    شدن، می شود که دلیل اصلی خرابی جک پارکینگ می باشد .
