Taxis are getting more complicated year by year. So are your your daily life. Why should you use your smartphone to hail a taxi when you simply can wave with your hands?
What it does
We stops a taxi without an app, just by waving with your hand, or using our predefined destination cards. Take a look at our presentation here for more information. Features:
- Google Cloud Text-to-Speach
- Web socket to communicate with motor controller
- TensorFlow PoseNet to recognize hand gesture
- Cross platform communication
- Live Robot Demo
How we built it
Clone the repository from our GitHub.
# Run this on RPi 3 to control the speech detection: $ python3 speech.py # Run this on RPi Server to control the robot: $ python3 client.py # To set up motor controller web-socket: $ python3 control.py
Challenges we ran into
Working cross platform with multiple languages is complicated. Always check for hardware issues first, before blaming the software guy.
Accomplishments that we`re proud of
We build a awesome robot in less than 36 hours!!!
What we learned
Hackathon is fun!
