  • Top secret Interface

    Here is a Top Secret Interface being worked on, code name Fairlady. Features Voice commands, voice response (lips moves, head turns), MP3, Music Vids, Movies, DVD, Nav, and cameras (also cell phone plug ins)

    here are some images:

    Heres the base pic:


    Menu:


    MP3:


    Vid menu:


    Movie playing:


    Fullscreen:


    Camera menu:


    *note, the Alphared symbol is not part of it.


    This is for a Touchscreen system running at 800x480 res

    will work for keyboard and mouse, but not as cool

    More pics when finish. Oh this is for my 350Z

                If so, I hope you tested it against road noise before you spent all that time programming. I did, and the results weren't encouraging.

                        It's great that your making a software for touch screen. You should make the buttons and font as big as possible.

                        To my understanding, VIA800 can't do Wide VGA. Have you tested it?

                        You should do integrade copilot and Street Atlas both since they're the best and better GPS nav software for PC.

                        I think PC software based voice commands and recognition basically sucks. it only picks up 60-70% of the speech in a quit room and almost nothing while driving. Maybe I have a bad mic or something. Hardware on the other hand might be a better solution. At CES, Visteon demo'd a Ford Windstar with voice recognition. The asian guy demo it with all the doors open and wind blowing. He spoke really fast with a heavy bad accent. The voice recognition picked up and understood every word he said. Then another guy came in and spoke perfect english and it understood him too. So it's not programed to a single user. They also showed a demo video of voice recognition at 70 MPH. It worked perfectly. Infinti and Honda are also using voice recognition in their cars.

                          I've done some work with the MS Speech API myself, and you can't just go out and completly declare that voice recognition sucks. Sure, dictating to a microphone at 70mph is not gonna work. But instead of using dictation just use a dynamic grammer structure where the computer knows what to listen for. If the computer only has to listen for 'Select Song XXX - XXXXX' where there are only 1000 or so songs, it is going to have a lot easier time than listening for anything that you say. The other thing that you have to remember is that a LOT depends on your microphone. I can garuntee you that all the car voice stuff is using a several hundred dollar DSP controlled microphone. If you have a couple hundred bucks to use with your microphone, then you can have near perfect recognition (NOT dictation) as well. I drove around for a long time in a 1991 Mazda protege with voice control, and it worked very well. It works if it is done right.

                            peter3, thanks for the help, but still waiting for the transistors to come in.

                            for speech recognition, its not the PC its the mic. I'm not having voice dictation with the interface (if you want to type your report wait till you get in the office), its a processor intensive process.
                            And yeah, it basically sucks, even at my desktop it don't type what I say.

                            The voice command works pretty good, I still have to fine tune it. (ah its so nice to hear her talk back when asking whats up)
                            As for car noise, I know copilot picks up your voice, so this should also. (haven't tried it yet, but confident it would work)

                            smashr2k is right on. without vast resources (ie $$$) its going to be given commands, ie. Play, Next, Menu, Music Videos, Mp3, etc...
                            Different enough to be 80%-95% accurate.

                            This project is gonna cost me about $1500-2000, which is cheaper than stock Nav and does way more. I could spend the price of my car to get it near what Auto manufactures are doing, but thats insane.

                            Speech Technology is a rough science, over 30 years and its still not perfect. Talking about AI here, takes a smarter man than me to perfect it.

                              Not trying to be impatient or rude but when is a good time frame to start expecting a release of this software, I only ask so i can make an informed decision as to which system to install once i get my millions dollars (lol)
