4th Annual UMR Undergraduate Research Symposium (1994: Mar. 23, Rolla, MO)
The most natural and informal means of communication and control is speech communication. Therefore, it also goes to say that control of home appliances, stereo, computer, and heating thermostat to name a few will naturally tend to this form of control.
A word recognition home controller was designed, constructed, and tested successfully. This paper will discuss the low-cost overall design, implementation, and results of a presently constructed and working "home controller." The results of this successful project in voice control are very promising and agree with the original hypothesis: A home that listens to your command is very much a part of the reality of the future.
