Were happy to announce official support for Arduino Leonardo with EasyVR
We updated our EasyVR Commander to be able to handle the “caterina” bootloader from Arduino. Now you can use the EasyVR Module and the EasyVR Shield mounted on your Leonardo and Customize your commands. The EasyVR Commander is also able to generate Sample code for the Leonardo. To make all this happen we also have a new Arduino Library Version 1.4 and a new Manual Version 3.6.6.
Also we have included all Sensory Tools inside the EasyVR Commander installer. This means you do not have to handle different installers to get Quick Synthesis 5 , Fluent Chip 3, Quick Text 2 Speaker Independent Lite including all language packs running on your System. Simply decide during the Commander installation what tools you like to use. Please note that Quick Text 2 Speaker Independent (QT2SI) is optional Software which has to be purchased separately to be functional.
Please check our download section for the latest files.
Here is the complete change log v3.7.25 – Apr 15 2014:
– added detection of Arduino Leonardo (“caterina” bootloader)
– added detection of serial port replacement (for Arduino Leonardo)
– fixed serial port enumeration (it was handling end of list as an error)
– updated Arduino library version bundled with installer (with Leonardo support)
– updated Arduino template code generation for Leonardo compatibility
– added installer for the whole suite of Sensory tools (QS5, FC3, QT2SI Lite and all language packs)
– fixed installer when removing old software versions
We are really excited to announce that we have now released the EasyVR 2.0 and it’s Arduino cousin, the EasyVR Shield 2.0.
The EasyVR 2.0 includes 3 new very cool features:
Support for custom Speaker Independent (SI) Command creation
In the past you had to either settle with the existing built-in SI command sets, or if you wanted to have your own commands they were only Speaker Dependent. I.e the module could only react to custom commands that were given with your voice. No more. Now it is possible to create up to 28 of your custom SI commands. This opens up a whole lot of new possibilities for your Speech Recognition projects. All you need is the new EasyVR 2.0 Module or the EasyVR Shield 2.0 and the QuickT2SI Lite license and you are ready to go.
SonicNet Sonic net allows you to network multiple devices together with audio tokens. The tokens are audible, but they can be embedded into standard audio such as music, spoken audio or anything else. A sound source like an mp3 file, CD, or DVD can also be used. This is particularly useful for applications where other wireless communication protocols are not available or possible. Have a go with this new feature and get creative.
DTMF Tone Generation It is now possible for you to create DTMF Tones with the EasyVR 2.0 Module.
What if I already have a first generation EasyVR Module?
No worries – you can easily get all of these new features up and running on your EasyVR Module with a simple Firmware Upgrade.
We are constantly working on our Products in order to improve quality and function.
This morning we released EasyVR Commander revision 3.4.10 and updated Arduino library Revision 1.2.
We recommend all our users to update their software to gain performance and functionality.
What´s new in 3.4.10
Fixed incorrect handling of group with 32 commands (max size)
Added preserving split-view position and main window size in program settings
Welcome to the new VeeaR website. We had been planning a revamp of the site for a long time. Recently we had an increasing number of technical issues with our previous site, which eventually forced us to take it down. We took this opportunity to do a proper revision of the site, organize information a little bit better and make the site look a bit more professional. We hope that you like the new look and apologize for any inconvenience caused by the site being offline for a few weeks.
The EasyVR Development Board can be used as an interface between EasyVR and computer and easily train the EasyVR module. The EasyVR DevBoard allows you to get started with your voice recognition project in no time. For more information about the EasyVR Development Board visit here.
This video shows two examples of using the Sonic Net feature: in the first example an Android App controls many EasyVR modules at the same time while in the second example two EasyVR modules communicate with each other wirelessly through sound tokens.
Sonic net demos source code is available for downloading here and here.
This is a simple demo showing how you can use an EasyVR Shield with an Arduino to implement an access control system based on voice passwords.
In this demo we use the EasyVR Commander to train user names and passwords but you could also make a complete stand-alone system by integrating all training phases in your Arduino code as well.
First of all we create some voice recordings to guide the user during the demo and we transfer them into the EasyVR sound table, then we train user names in group 1 and related passwords in group 16.
In order to simulate the access opening and closing we used a simple servo. Obviously you are free to connect and control anything you like (for instance electrolocks or the like).
The Arduino code let the EasyVR wait for user names in group 1 and, if any name is recognized, the system asks for the related password. If the password is recognized the access is granted, if not the access is denied.
