Abstract: In this study , a voice guidance system for autonomous robots is designed based on microcontroller. The proposed system consists of a microcontroller and a voice recognition processor that can recognize a limited number of voice patterns. The commands of autonomous robots are classified and organized such that one voice recognition processor can distinguish robot commands under each class. Thus, the proposed system can distinguish more voice commands than one voice recognition processor can. A voice command system for three autonomous robots is implemented with a microcontroller from Microchip PIC16F876, a voice recognition processor RSC364 from Sensory and a set of Infra-red emitters- receivers. A proposal is also outlined for integrating the voice command system into a reinforcement learning scheme in order to enhance the performance of learning task by autonomous robots. This work and design have taken 10 months, starting on january 2004.
