Global distribution deal offers speech recognition and vehicle IoT devices

26-05-2020 | Mouser Electronics | New Technologies

Mouser has a global distribution agreement with Fortebit. Through the agreement, the company's product line available from Mouser includes the EasyVR 3 Plus speech recognition devices together with Polaris vehicle IoT platform.

EasyVR 3 Plus is a multipurpose speech recognition module that allows designers to simply add versatile, robust and cost-effective speech recognition abilities to virtually any application. The module can be employed with any host with a UART interface powered at 3.3V-5V, such as Arduino and Microchip PIC boards. The module allows up to 256 user-defined speaker-dependent or speaker verification commands that can be taught in any language, divided into maximum 16 groups. A selection of 26 built-in speaker-independent commands allows ready-to-run basic controls in six languages. With the optional Quick T2SI Lite license, users are able to add up to 28 custom speaker-independent command vocabularies, with up to 12 commands each, for a total of 336 possible commands.

The Quick T2SI Lite text-to-speaker-independent (T2SI) software includes the latest advances in neural networks, combined with Hidden Markov Modeling, to produce a powerful phonemic recogniser, using text entry to create, edit, build and download embedded vocabularies to the EasyVR. To further aid development, the company stocks the EasyVR 3 Plus Shield for Arduino, which enables designers to utilise the EasyVR 3 Plus module with any Arduino Uno R3-compatible board. Giving everything required to start developing with the EasyVR, the development kit comprises the EasyVR 3 Plus speech recognition module, the QuickT2SI Lite software license, the EasyVR Shield for Arduino, and the QuickUSB cable to program the module.

Polaris is a Python-programmable, Arduino-compatible open-source IoT platform, designed for remote logging and cloud applications. Polaris is designed with features like geofencing, analog sensors, real-time tracking, external commands, audio, and SMS. The Polaris Vehicle IoT platform is offered as a standalone board in three wireless technology options — 2G, 3G, or NB-IoT — or in corresponding kits (2G, 3G, or NB-IoT) that incorporate a black aluminium case, GPS/Glonass/GSM antenna, and optional lithium battery. Both the standalone platform and kit are ready for employment as a vehicle tracker as well as other IoT or industrial applications.
