Development of Universal Communication Aid for Emergency Using Motion Pictogram
VUTE is a communication aid technology that aims to take away the communication barrier for people with hard of hearing related to old age, deaf people and people traveling abroad. VUTE uses motion pictograms and can be used without prior training. We created a prototype of VUTE (VUTE 2009), a system that can be used in emergency situations. This paper describes the design concept, overview and evaluation of VUTE 2009.
