View Full Version : Intelligent Interaction with Robot by Speech Recognition

06-11-2005, 10:11 PM
I have previously worked with robot controlled by speech recognition, and i used to give commands through voice..
But with that i was able to give commands of at the max two words, at the break of speech it termenates function and accepts the voice and recognises the word...

Now i want that the robot should be able to answer questions also and act as per commands.....For that i want to creat a library of questions & answers...and want the robot to listen the whole question and answer or act...

If anybody have an experiance with speech recognition & and can help...

I had done something similar using JSAPI ( recognition ) and JSML ( synthesis ) . You can also try Microsoft SAPI etc for the same purpose .

Search the net and ull find ample help . You can also use a NLI based bot for the answering the questions ( Alice etc ) .

Thanks Vikas
The above message was pasted by me..

I have made speech reco. software using "SAPI" in VB..u might be knowing how easy it is..
But the problem is, there is a delay set at which the system terminates taking anymore words, which is very less...

Like i can't speak " How are you?", it will detect "How" or at the max "How Are" and will respond accordingly...

There is one grammer to be written for this....
Now i want help so that it can take the whole sentance like "What is you name?" which is not possible right now....

Try to find some solution...

Well in what i had did we have to define grammer for both the side so for example a basic human suide grammer will be like ....

grammar sl;

public <move> = ( Your | your | ur ) ( Move | move ) {move} | Your Turn {move};

public <bye> = Good bye {bye} | So long {bye};

You can see how combinations are handled etc

While the robot side can be

# file for grammar
grammar = sapi_en.gram

# things we say
greeting = Hello Human. My name is <EMMP/>LYNX the checkers playing robot.
user_turn = Its <EMP/>your move.
user_lose = Astala Vista <EMP/>Baby.
user_win = System Failure . Explosion is immenet in 10 seconds.
user_force = Its a Forced move.
user_invalid = Invalid Move.
user_exit = <EMP/>Bye now.
eh = What?

This is a very basic user interaction which my robot intially implemented ... for these ul have to go though JSML and JSAPI :) . dun have idea much abt micro$oft counterpart .

I worked with VB only...
now i will see how java speech api works
Just tell me, are u able to give complete sentances as input?

using speech recognition technology is great but there are many drawbacks in it because human voic tend to change and is not constant.
what if in a situation that a preson issuffering from a bad throat , he cannot have the same pitch or frequency in his voice.in that case he will not be accepted as a user. if this system is used for security check in an office,the person will be stranded outside.
instead of using voice why not use a retina recognition. 8) 8)
