Agent virtuel signeur - Aide à la communication des personnes sourdes

Abstract : We present in this Phd report our investigation dedicated toward the design and animation of autonomous and realistic signing agents. The highlight is focused on expressive quality of gestures. We show how expressive quality of gesture may convey meaningful information in the context of iconicity. We then propose a discourse model that is able to handle both illustrative and non illustrative intends involved in sign language production. Tanks to motion analysis performed on a gesture sequence that is captured on a professional deaf sign language instructor, we highlight key expressive parameters. We then propose motion generation methods that suits our gesture specification model. this motion generation method rely on several gesture generation methods that are able to handle the variability induced by the requested expressive quality of the gesture.
