EasyVR and Cobra 2

Hi All, has anyone successfully gotten the EasyVR voice recognition module to work with gadgeteer? Maybe with the duinoproto board?
How would one go about doing so?

Or can I use the music module to stream sound to a PC over wifi and use the PC to do the recognition and send a command back to the microcontroller? (In this case Cobra 2 wifi)

You can use the easyVR directly with gadgeteer. It uses plain old UART, which you could wire directly to a K type socket (http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Socket%20Type%20K ) using one of the breakouts (https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/405 ). You could write a bit of code to pass through the data received from the easyVR, and add any custom logic you may need. Take a look at the existing Serial-USB module driver code for a good starting point (http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest ).

It’s not ‘plug and play’, but where’s the fun in that :slight_smile: Maybe one of these maniac module makers (Justin?) could make a batch of VR modules using this chipset?
