  12. MUDRA - The census in 2011 revealed that over 26 million people in India (2.1% of the total population) have some kind of disability. The speech impaired people account for 7.68% of the total disabled people. These segments of society suffer in their day to day life as they are unable to communicate or express effectively. The usual mode of their communication is through hand gestures and symbols which is often misunderstood or ridiculed by the general public as they are not aware of them. This devoid has certainly hampered speech impaired people of their normal life and are isolated with social insecurities.

    In a vision to bridge the gap between normal and speech disabled people; four B-Tech students under Amrita Robotics Research Lab (ARRL) have devised a wearable glove “MUDRA” upholding the social driven values of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.   This team at ARRL has come up with the first working prototype and the demonstrator is as shown in the figure below. The glove converts the hand gestures to voice output.  It’s economical with the cost of the prototype is approximately INR 7500 and the team has worked for over 4 months in this regard. The glove in its present form can recognise numbers from one to ten and “Indian Sign Language” gestures of words like morning, good, thank you, night to name a few. It is now in the advance development and refinement stage of its production cycle. The team has started to validate its social feasibility and the preliminary results have proven to be very encouraging.  They are confident that it will be a reality in the near future catering to the needs of the speech impaired people and encourage them to have a normal life with more ease. Also, the team exudes that the glove is more versatile and can be; interfaced with medical instruments to benefit remote operation, used as input device in the gaming industry, robotics etc.
