MOVI, a standalone speech recognizer shield for Arduino

20150701024028_MOVI

MOVI is an offline speech recognizer and voice synthesizer that adds voice control functionality to any Arduino project

MOVI stands for My Own Voice Interface! It is the first standalone speech recognizer and voice synthesizer for Arduino with full English sentence capability:
Up to 200 customizable English sentences.
Speaker independent
Standalone, cloudless and private
Very easy to program

MOVI provides an alternative to buttons, remote controls, or cell phones by letting you use full-sentence voice commands for tasks such as turning devices on and off, entering alarm codes, and carrying on programmed conversations with projects.

MOVI is plug and play! Connect the shield to your Arduino Uno or compatible board, connect an optional speaker, and you’re ready to go.

Pozyx shield gives position

20150604033001_PozyxShield

by elektormagazine.com:

Resolving the position of free roaming robots can be quite challenging. You can only expect to get accuracy of around 6 to 10 meters by using a standard low-cost GPS system and that can be further downgraded by poor signal strength inside buildings. Bluetooth and WiFi positioning can achieve 1 to 5 metres resolution but that’s often not enough. The Pozyx system has been developed to achieve a positional accuracy of 10 cm and works indoors or outdoors.

Four ‘Anchor’ transceiver units attach to walls or fences surrounding the space in which the Pozyx Shield operates. Communication between the shield and the four anchors allows the shield to determine its position and orientation within its operational area.

Nokia phone Arduino shield

IMG_20150519_105948

Anyone awake in the early 2000’s knows the familiar shape of those candy bar style mobile phones. In the Shenzhen phone markets we see tons of them. Literally, there are tons of these phone passing through the markets every day. Some are resold while others are disassembled for parts and recycled. This is where all those cheap Nokia 3310/5110 LCD shields come from. It’s great to see so much reuse and recycling.

Having all these cheap LCDs is nice, but most of the interesting and useful parts are wasted. We saw a fantastic opportunity to save a heap of phones from the recycling bin and save people a pocket full of money. We can make a positive impact on the environment if we reuse some of these phones that we are literally tripping over in the streets. Let’s make an Arduino to GSM network bridge for just a few dollars.

Reflow Master Shield – Arduino Solder Reflow Oven

Turn your toaster oven into your own solder reflow factory shop using the Reflow Master Shield!!!

The Reflow Master Shield from Paladin Enabling Technologies is an Arduino shield that turns your normal toaster oven into a reflow oven. A reflow oven is used in the production of electronics to change solder paste from a paste form to a liquid form and lastly to a solid form. This results in all your components being soldered for you in one run.

But let me share with you why I’ve created the Reflow Master Shield and why you would want one.

Arduino WiFi Shield

ArduinoIOT

by elektor.com:

A recent press release from Atmel has announced the introduction of the Arduino WiFi Shield 101 which can be connected to any modern Arduino R3 board to give connectivity to the Internet via any traditional Wi-Fi access points. This new Shield is said to offer secure, cost-effective, high-performance Wi-Fi connectivity. The new board is targeted at Arduino IoT applications and incorporates Atmel’s WINC 1500 wireless network controller offering IEEE 802.11 b/g/n (1×1) at up to 72 Mbps and supporting IEEE 802.11 WEP, WPA2 security enterprise.

The xPico WiFi Shield supports simultaneous wireless LAN client connectivity and access point (AP) functionality. This makes it easy to securely connect to an Arduino microcomputer using web-based tools and interactive applications on smartphones or tablets. Its built-in controller ensures that there is no need for a wireless LAN driver on the Arduino microcontroller to configure wireless connectivity.

The xPico Wi-Fi Shield includes connection management software and a web-based configuration interface to manage connectivity complexity on behalf of the application developer. This significantly cuts down the development overheads for engineers, designers, students and hobbyists who need to quickly add smart Wi-Fi solutions to their Arduino designs.
