Controlling robots with hand motions is intensive. Controlling with voice requires less energy.
What it does
Our platform provides developers with an easy way to incorporate voice control in robotics. We can control this example robot with simple and natural voice commands. These sort of commands require less attention than using a remote control.
Many obvious uses, especially in home environment.
How we built it
caffeine + obsession + frustration = robot -Took apart old robotic vacuum for chassis. -Hacked into motors. -Connected motors to microcontroller -Connect microcontroller to internet -Made Alexa skill that rights info to webserver -robot accesses web server for commands
Challenges I ran into
Connect robot to network -used buggy apis
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for BuddyBOT
adding more sensors
