Project Voice :
It is an attempt at controlling device with voice controlled Mobile App (android app in this case). This project has been tested with Intel Edison (kickass as it is), with a few hurdles here and there. I am writing this document to make sure you can installed the required packages required here without a lot of pain. All this has been done on Yocto Linux , this was the default linux that was loaded on the edison
Step 1: Setting Up Intel Edison
Python 2.7 comes installed. You will need Requests and Mraa modules to be imported. The funny thing is pip doesn't work, nor does apt-get. So we will install things like a hacker does it.
We will use a command called curl.
To install Requests, do this
curl -O <a href="https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/r/requests/requests-" rel="nofollow"> https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/r/request...</a>.5.1.tar.gz#md5=c270eb5551a02e8ab7a4cbb83e22af2e
The above is going to point to the download address in the requests page, to do the same with some other package you want to install, do this :
1. Go to the package page and hover on the download button, right click and copy the link address. All you have to do now is curl -O linkAddress
Step 2: Python Code
You can find the link to the python code here. The code is commented, please let me know if there are any doubts.
Step 3: Server Code
The server was written by Ajith N N and you can find the link here.
Step 4: Android App
The details about the app and how you could build it using Cordova can be found here.
