Unfortunately not. If you’re building a robot requiring onboard processing, I recommend a lattepanda. Phones and raspberry pi doesn’t quite cut it for those features.
Thanks for the response. 2nd question would it be possible to add something like the geeetech voice recognition module in order to achieve this feature? Sorry if it's a dumb question I am still new to all this.
Hi @jbrawley9906 Yes, that module communicates via UART so you'd be able to use it, you'd just have to write a bit of code to make it happen. Luckily it looks like there are a lot of Arduino example projects so you should be able to follow the examples to write your own ez-scripts.
Thanks for the response Jeremie.
How would I go about hooking that module up to the ezb in order to communicate. The code I could figure out as that's pretty simple with the ezb, however I have not hooked anything up to the ezb as an input yet. I've only hooked up servos and lights to the ezb so far

There's a UART port (UART0) on the EZ-B, pictured here:

You'll need to connect the following connections from the EZ-Bv4 to the Geeetech module:

TX to RX
RX to TX

It seems the module needs 4.5-5.5V so you'll need a 5V regulator to go from a VIN pin on the EZ-B to the VCC pin of the module.

Just search on the community or in the EZ-Script "Script Help" section to send UART0 commands.

*Edit: There's also an example ARC project called "UART Peripheral" that comes with ARC to help you out.

To be clear will the geetech work with the mobile interface?
Yes, You can activate scripts with the Mobile interface. Anything within the EZ-Script editor is fair game.
