We wanted to make something that can have a positive impact on the world that uses IoT technology. We decided that mobility was a challenge we wanted to tackle so we focused on connecting a users phone with a wheelchair/mobility device.
What it does
Our app listens to voice commands and sends those commands to a server. Out embedded system reads the commands and performs them on our robot.
How we built it
Using 3-D printed parts, raw materials, motors, and some micro controllers we built the robot. The rest of the work was used for making the application and configuring APIs to store the right voice commands.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge was having proper wheel hubs and bearings that can rotate properly on our car. Other problems came from server communication with out ESP32.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that our robot can be commanded through any phone or computer with our application.
What we learned
We learned how to connect a server, micro controller, and phone applications to make a robot move.
What's next for Voice Mobility
Next we want to make a functioning robot with proper wheel rotations and get a strong enough battery to make the robot move properly. After this we want to be able to have credentials so that every person can only control their own robot/mobility device.
