Persuasive Intent
RAVE, or Robot Avatar Thermal-Enhanced Prototype, is a learning tool designed specifically for deaf infants to give them increased exposure to sign language at a young age to help them develop a strong foundation for vocabulary, grammar, and language. University of Southern California (USC) Viterbi School of Engineering collaborated with researchers from three other universities, Gallaudet University, Yale University and the University G. D’Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara, to design this prototype.
