What motivates us
In the BABIR project, we propose to develop a robust vocal interface between the man and the robot. This robustness will be based on different level of signal processing. The first level is a high quality filtering of the acquired signal, coupled with an acoustic echo canceller. The second level is the implementation of low level speech recognition module, able to recognize, with a very high success rate, a set of words that will efficiently influence the behaviour of the robot.
