Final Project Overview

We wanted to implement a speech to text method to control the car. We tried using pico voice API however, had no luck as the documentation was vague to understand in the short couple day time span summer had to offer. If we had more time with this approach we would implement a voice node for ROS and make sure the topics are correctly link to allow the speech to work. Rather for a quick demo solution we decided to use IBM cloud Watson software which constantly hears and translate. This issue with this approach is that it reads all the noise so having a car running would not make this API ideal.

Our Python Code!

## You need to install pyaudio to run this example
# pip install pyaudio

# When using a microphone, the AudioSource `input` parameter would be
# initialised as a queue. The pyaudio stream would be continuosly adding
# recordings to the queue, and the websocket client would be sending the
# recordings to the speech to text service
