Communications sytems for hearing-impaired people
The objective of the LABIAO project (Lecture lABIale Assistée par Ordinateur or Computer-Assisted lips reading) is to design, develop and distribute a software suite that increases the autonomy of deaf and hearing-impaired people in their day-to-day professional and social lives.
In this context, ARTEMIS is developing a comprehensive solution for facial animation compression, transmission and visualization (3D pose and expressions), compliant with the MPEG-4 standard. In particular, the morphing technology promoted in 2005 by ARTEMIS in MPEG-4 Part 16 is used to animate a synthetic face realistically at low bitrates.
