Addressing a press meet, Principal Dr Srinivasa Mayya D said dumb persons use gestures to communicate. But people are not able to understand what they try to interpret through their gestures. 6S-GRS device is done to interpret the gestures made by the people to speech, so that they can communicate with the society at ease. The device consists of a camera which captures the gestures made.

This is converted into digital format in the computer which contains the code written in MATLAB. As the position and pattern made by the hand for each gesture is unique, it is interpreted by the computer and the audio file corresponding to it is triggered which is stored in the database, giving the message aloud. 

The device developed by the students can interpret 15 gestures in different languages like Hindi, English, Kannada and Malayalam.
Apart from assisting the dumb people, the device can be used to communicate in an unknown language. B Eshak, Arth Kumar D Rao, Anson Stephen and Faheem Ali designed 6S-GRS.

The project was completed under the guidance of Assistant Professor Satish Kumar K, Associate Professor Lokesh and HoD, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering,Prof Bheema Shastry and Principal Dr Srinivas Mayya.
