Using gestures and voice commands to control the robot

Couple of months ago we decide to participate in Intel's perceptual computing challenge (http://perceptualchallenge.intel.com). The idea was to extend driver cockpit application to control Veterobot (http://veterobot.org) with gestures and voice recognition. We are using detected thumb position in 3D space. Position along horizontal axis is used as a steering signal and distance to the camera (depth) to control acceleration (forward and backward).

It was a fun exercise but some more tuning is still required to achieve smooth control experience. So it is work in progress.

As seen in the picture there is an Arduino Uno with a protoshield on top with an IR receiver and IR LED. I undertook this project to learn how we used infra red … Read more

Possible robot reactions

To other users,

 

               I was wondering, is it possible for the robot to react at voice commands?

And what actions could a robot do generally?

Another batch of questions are: It says that a robot has a personality. Does it? In what way can we witness it?

Could it's actions be based on their personality or does it only apply to artifical intelligence?

 

I hope I can get some advice. Thank you.

OK,you can read it now     "The SpeakJet is a completely self contained, single chip voice and complex sound synthesizer." This walk thru will show how to use … Read more
