Title: Voice-Controlled Robots
Post by: stevesy on October 17, 2017, 02:56:12 PM
Hi all,

I'm new to this forum.  Just wondering if any of you know what the most famous or state-of-the-art voice-controlled robots are these days?  I'm doing a literature review for a college project (a voice-controlled mobile robot) and would really appreciate any help you could give.

Many thanks,

stevesy

I would offer my opinion;  ;D
In view of using a raspberry pi or regular computer, Dragon dictate may be the
way to go, for your personal use. Otherwise, you could interface alexa (amazon)
to your house. Of course, there is also Watson, IBM's deepmind. you would
have to program your Starter Development kit, probably program in python.
     My preferred way is to use Dragon dictate running in the background as a child
window, then parse the voice -2 - text file with python; use your python AI to
interpret the command, and Wala! Instant robot!
     Obviously there is ALOT of programming, I/O checking, interface making,
and robot building. I am sure there are "shake and bake" robots for sale to
meet what you want, but the $$ goes up. Good luck!   :) :)

Thanks for your advice mklrobo.  Do you know what the most advanced voice-controlled "robots" are these days?
