Speech Recognition Via Mobile?


I am having a great time learning this whole new world of playing with robots and developing a set of bots to help teach kids English here in Korea.

I have two developer kits so that groups will put together a robot then practice voice commands although it seems that speech recognition does not work via mobile?

I will only have one computer in the class and ideally the robot will not be near the computer so the class tablets seemed idea to run them via the mobile app.

If i am confined to work via the once computer will I be able to have two robots running at once ?

Thanks Cheers Wayne

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Subscribe to ARC Pro, and your robot will become a canvas for your imagination, limited only by your creativity.


That's great to hear:)

  1. To have two robots run at once, you can "sort of" hack it with ARC but only one Movement Panel is allowed, so it's a lot of work. Otherwise simply load two copies of ARC - which makes the most sense. Much like to have multiple MS Word documents, you have two copies of MS Word running... etc

  2. You can see what features are available on the learn page for the Mobile Interface Builder here: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Help.aspx?id=196

*Note: not all features of ARC PC can be supported in ARC Mobile due to processor and OS limitations. As you are aware, your phone is not a computer, nor is it as powerful.

If the class tablets are running Windows 8 (not the RT version), then you could use the speech recognition option with the Windows download version of ARC.


Thanks Dj and Steve.

I probably should have just checked the idea for two versions of the ARC.

Although it would have been ideal to have each robot working off a connected tablet with the voice recognition I will still be able to run the class via the room computer.

The tablets are Android so no go with the Windows 8 way but thanks Steve.

Wayno - over time we are adding more features to ARC Mobile

@Anthony, use the custom HTTP server and make a fancy web based controller, you'll have more options available to you too such as animated gifs, flash etc.
