Using AI to reproduce sign language with a robotic arm

We visited Esirem’s Condorcet university center in Le Creusot (France), where robotics and programming courses are taught.
Through this exchange, we were able to see how one of their projects works: they use our 6-axis robotic arm to reproduce movements by AI in space using sign recognition and interpretation. Many other projects and exercises are also carried out.

David Fofi, professor in charge of the robotics department, tells us that Niryo robots are used for two different purposes.

“We’re a young robotics department, so we need to equip ourselves quickly, and well, so the advantage of Niryo is that it’s: less expensive, and we can actually afford to install a TP room.

We use the robots to model and multiply robots for an introduction to industrial robotics, and then on the other hand, we use them for educational projects, where students use the robots to develop small projects, small ideas on these arms.

It’s a slightly more exploratory vocation, so there are little manipulations that have been done, that have been developed by our students, who are, in the programming curriculum at the moment, based on the Niryo arms.”

David also explained a project currently under development by ESIREM’s 5th year students:

“Our 5th year students have been developing a small program on the Niryo cobot since last year. The students have created a little sign language, they put themselves in front of a camera and they indicate by signs the moves the robot must make and the robot must, repeat these moves.

For Niryo, this project is totally representative of the broad use that can be made of the Ned2 6-axis robotic arm: combining robotics learning with AI learning to develop the maximum number of skills in students.

Maximize Operational Efficiency with a 6-Axis Robotic Arm and AI

Technological advancements are converging to unlock endless opportunities in the realm of industrial automation. The integration of a 6-Axis Robotic Arm, also known as a cobot, with artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing how schools and businesses approach production and manufacturing :

  • boost collaboration between humans and robot
  • great learning flexibility and exercises
  • an easy-to-implement learning and implementation tool
