The goal of this project is to simulate the 26 Braille codes by vibrating a motor mounted on the glove’s finger tips. When the tips tapped out a Braille code, the information is stored in SRAM, or in EEPROM; or sent as ASCII data wirelessly to other compatible Braille gloves.
The system features two gloves that communicate wirelessly. The main board includes a dsPIC33FJ256MC510 microcontroller, which controls four vibration motors, four accelerometers, and a 32-KB SPI serial EEPROM 25LC256. This system provides a unique method for someone to both read and speak using Braille.
