Hi all. I've had a good look around the website and can't really find a solid answer for a few questions I have so I'm hoping I can find some safe advice from some experienced EZ-Robot users.
Love the look of the dev kit! I have an UP! Plus printer and lots of experience using it largely for RC flying (aircraft and multirotor parts). I stumbled across the site while procrastinating on thingiverse. Struggling to find justification with the wife to buy a hex robot when she says I have enough hexacopters to go round. A thought occurred...
I'm putting together a man shed as a workshop in the garden, a fair size to work on bigger stuff. It will have mains power, 12v LED rail lighting, a 2Kw heater and a 12,000btu A/C unit (I'll be doing temperature critical fibre glassing work in there). Electronic door locks and actuators, big extract fan etc...
Basically I figure instead of building a robot, why not automate the manshed with the EZ-B, have my own J.A.R.V.I.S. (Of iron man fame) with the use of an MP3 trigger. I could walk in, ask it to warm the place up to 22 deg C and turn on the lighting and extract fan after it closes the doors. All at the same time running security with a servo mounted EZ-wireless camera.
The first question I have, is does the EZ-B have an internal microphone for voice commands, or an option to attach an external
Mic? All the videos and tutorials only mention having used the internal mic on a laptop/PC.
My second question, which I guess is slightly more important, this EZ-B doesn't need to be WiFi connected to a computer to run all its functions does it? Again, it may seem obvious but I've yet to see the paragraph or video that explicitly says once the code and instructions are loaded on the EZ-B, it can run autonomously.
Question the third, is there a voice generator section to the software? I.E. Can a word or sentence be written in and the EZ-B (again, without being permanently wifi tethered to a PC) figures out how to voice it (such as with apples "Siri")?
Many thanks in advance to all whom take part in this thread!
