Hi,

I am searching for an avatar like visualization in ROS.
So I have voice output and a face with speech animation that I can present on a tablet.

Right now, I only found gazebo and festival which could be usable.
Gazebo seems to me like a 3D editor similar to bender where I can load models through ROS and animate them. But I would just need something like a player that animates the face when there is voice output.

Has anyone a tip for me?

Hi there,

I am really not experienced with that but I would use Blender and its game engine. You could create a 3D model of a face that would be animated on a simple input.

This video is quite old and crappy but it shows a proof of concept of an arm being rendered in Blender and animated via a socket connection. I think you could build something similar with a face in spite of an arm no?

Raph

Right now, it doesn't work from linux client to windows server. On a windows machine it works, but not ubuntu 10.04. The client does not connect to the windows server.

Does xFace work? I see their last news is from 2008.

Thank you, it is kinda similar to gazebo. I also found xFace, that could also be a possibility. http://xface.fbk.eu/
