Using a smartphone to verbally control a robot: Natural Language Processing for teleoperation

  • Year of Publication:
  • 2020

This project presents a solution to how untrained workers may control robots in the future by utilising the abundance of smart phones to interface with an externally hosted server that uses complex Natural Language Processing to analyse intent of a user’s voice input which is then communicated to the robot. To achieve this 3 seperate inter-connected components needed to be developed. A controller interacting with the robot, a client-side application for recording and sending microphone data and a server working as the bridge between the client and robot controller while doing all Natural Language Processing. The solution explored in this paper is one that could successfully operate in real world application with great success.
