Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Sign language is a interactive visual language used by deaf people. However, most hearing people do not learn the sign language. They usually communicate through writing or interpreters. The portable sign language recognition and translation system is necessary for interactive and direct communication in daily use. We have been developing a mobile motion capture system that acquire signer’s body motion toward applying to sign language recognition and translation. The system deteriorates the accuracy of 2D / 3D pose estimation in real environment because of lacking the training dataset. To estimate the pose in higher accuracy, we propose a technique using OpenPose that is high-quality 2D pose estimation tool.
