TIGAL Launches VRbot – a low cost, easy-to-use voice recognition module
TIGAL Launches VRbot - a tiny , low cost voice recognition module designed to easily add versatile voice command functionality to Robots and many additional applications where voice command control is desired.
The VRbot module can also be used to efficiently implement Voice Recognition capabilities on a vast range of other host platforms that have an UART at TTL level or are capable of emulating one through Bit Banging, such as Arduino Boards, PIC, ATMEGA, ARM etc. The module is fully self-contained and interacts with any host through a simple, yet robust serial protocol that allows the addition of Voice Recognition capabilities to many applications beyond robot control. All protocol specifications are provided to assist in interfacing with the module from any host platform.
“We initially designed the VRbot module to be used to add voice control capability to ROBONOVA-I and ROBOZAK robots. However, during the development process we realized that it made sense to make the protocol open to users and allow the module to be easily interfaced with many other robots or hosts for wider application purposes. We already have many customers testing the module on various applications and are very excited to see how these projects develop in the future.” – Markku Riihonen, Marketing & Sales Manager, TIGAL
The VRbot measures 24mm x 45mm in size, is shipped together with the power cable, data cable and microphone and is available directly from TIGAL or a local distributor. The module is priced at €39 with discounts available for volume purchases. Current demo videos and provided sample code include VRbot used with Robonova, a POPbot, Arduino USB Board and Mikroelektronika’
