Inspiration

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

node.js

What's next for BuddyBOT

adding more sensors
