With the newly released Microsoft Robotics Studio and Parallax's Boe-Bot Robot Kit, which uses Bluetooth technology, robotic programming has become accessible to anyone with .NET programming skills.
Earlier this year Microsoft released Microsoft Robotics Studioan SDK that you can use to program robots ranging from small robots like the iRobot Roomba vacuum to the large robots used on assembly lines.
Learn how to build speech recognition applications that let you control devices using voice commands. This article shows how you can control a robot's movement with spoken commands.
Silence may be golden, but increasingly, applications, appliances, and other automated systems are acquiring the ability to speak. You can take advantage of text-to-speech technology to voice-enable your .NET applications.
Speech-enabled applications require specialized grammars that clearly define the types of input they're expected to parse and understand. Find out how to build grammars by walking through the process of building a grammar for an order status retrieval system that lets callers retrieve orders by voice.
Using Microsoft Speech Server, .NET developers can build telephony or voice-only applications quickly and easily. This article lists 10 tips to consider before designing these types of applications.
