Object Searching Robot Controlled by Edge-AI

Open Access

Abstract:  This study proposes and develops an edge-AI-based autonomous mobile robot based on open-source software. The robot is capable of voice and object recognition; it can detect and approach an object specified by a user’s voice. Because the robot is controlled by voice commands, the user can control the robot intuitively. In the present study, we used a robot operating system to facilitate the development. All functions, including voice recognition, object recognition, and motor control, were implemented in the edge AI computer based on open-source software. We conducted preliminary experiments to verify the performance of the developed system.
