An Animated Auslan Tuition System

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Auslan Tuition System uses a computer generated signer to provide a flexible, visual Australian Sign Language (Auslan) educational tool. Signs are generated and animated by our generic Human Modelling System that is implemented in cross-platform object-oriented C++. The Human Modelling System consists of three modules: the core Human Modelling Module for model construction, manipulation and forward kinematics; the Model Rendering Module for displaying model configuration visually using OpenGL; and the Model Interpolation Module, for providing flexible partial-keyframe interpolation and animation control. These modules form the basis of the Auslan Tuition System, and allow the display of categorised sign phrases, interactive fingerspelling and contextual sign dialogue examples. The user has complete viewing control of sign display and animation, running on modest hardware.
