Picture of the robotic fingerspelling hand

Headed by Dr. Deborah Gilden, the RERC has repeatedly sponsored university student projects to develop a robotic fingerspelling hand to communicate with deaf-blind people. The most recent team of three seniors at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo has designed and fabricated the hand shown here with their poster describing the project.
