Hello, all just wanted to let everyone know what I've been up to. I've been in the field of telematics for about 2.5 years now designing embedded hardware solutions to writing front-ends. I recently finished a front-end that I submitted to Xenarc.
Written in VB6:
Voice activated Audio list with alternate detection methods to accuratly "guess" what the user said even though SAPI didn't clearly hear what they said. It's rate of success was 97% (background noises did have an effect though, as well as mic. quality)
- e-mail read back to the user (POP3 e-mail account)
- DVD playback
- Weather Updates, (81 maps, covering the entire US, 9 maps per region, 9 regions)
- Wireless song transfer to the car from home pc (Server/Client software)
I'm starting a new project, with the same concepts but written in .NET and hopefully it will be free for everyone to either use or for other programmers to get inspiration from.
here's a teaser screen of the main interface (it's very rough right now and the icons will probably be changed 100000 times before it takes its final shape.)
I was thikning of modelling the bottom task bar after mac's OSX "task bar"
