Patrick Thomas Mitchell has been once again been creating awesome add-ons for your Arduino projects and has this month launched a new Kickstarter campaign for his Arduino speech recognition and relay board modules.
The Arduino compatible modules are now production ready and have been designed to easily add additional functionality to your home projects. Watch the video below to learn more about each one and how it functions using a compatible Android smartphone application.
The Bluetooth Controlled Speech Recognition Unit:
This bad boy is simple, and easy to use. With the help of the free AMR_Voice App, you can control 10x Arduino compatible outputs. The LCD will display the text of what you’ve said into your phone. If you’ve said any of the following words, then that relative output will be activated: “Forward”, “Backward”, “Up”, “Down”, “Left”, “Right”, “On”, “Off”, “Stop”, & “4444”. You have the option of selecting between latching and momentary modes of operation.
The final output is labelled “Code”, and this corresponds to “4444”. When say the word “Four” 4x times one after another, then this output will be activated. Alternately, you can use this module to communicate between rooms within the house! The HC-06 Bluetooth receiver module can be synced with and communicated with at up to 10 meters. I’ve personally tested from one end of my house to the other, and have no problems with connectivity!
The Bluetooth Controlled Relay Board With Optional Solenoid Lock:
There are quite a few apps out there that can send data from a smart phone via Bluetooth to control your circuit. I personally use RoboRemo, as it fun and easy to use. There is a free version, but you can upgrade for a very fair price. Using this free Android app, I’m able to wirelessly control the four high power relays on this module. There is also an optional solenoid lock (Available in certain reward tiers) that will allow for you to create a Bluetooth lock with ease! It is extremely easy to use, and I will be creating a video showing you how to use RoboRemo. You do not need to use this App specifically, but I find it to be very efficient! Simply sync your device to this relay board, and use the app to control the relays! There are momentary and latching options which can be changed on the fly!
The Arduino project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump into manufacture. So if you think the Arduino modules are something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help them become a reality.
