Abstract

This article presents the development of a didactic game for the teaching-learning of the basic language of Ecuadorian signs, for the hearing impaired and / or interested in learning the basic sign language of Ecuador. The input device is a Leap Motion, which detects the gestural signals in the Unity3D software. For the processing of the signals, there is a classification system implemented in MatLab for the two types of signal configuration: Static and dynamic; correlation is used if the configuration is static (no motion signal) and the DTW algorithm is used for dynamic (motion signal) configurations. Communication between Unity3D and MatLab is done using shared memory. This development core acquires a didactic use with two games, implemented in Unity3D for single player and multiplayer.
