More details about the DIY SelfieBot construction

The mechanical part of the DIY SelfieBot is a holder for a phone or a tablet with the ability to rotate after the speaker http://endurancerobots.com/en/robots/diy-selfiebot/

The DIY SelfieBot device is a completely open source solution for Windows and Android.

It means that anybody can make it independently, order with us a DIY kit of electronics or a ready SelfieBot device.

The DIY SelfieBot has the function to track the speaker’s motions and rotate after him giving the user the impression of interaction with the caller.

The SelfieBot Endurance ChatBot platform advantages

The advantage of the offered solution SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot is as follows: the robot-companion created on its basis exists not only inside the World Wide Web but offline as well. You can communicate with it anywhere provided there is the Internet connection 3G/4G/WiFi.

The SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot includes an embedded face recognition module, that is, a ChatBot sees who he talks with and is able to identify the interlocutor by face. You can configure the SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot so that every member of the family will have a personal ChatBot with its individual looks and character.

How does it work?

  • You register and create your ChatBot in the Botlibre system.
  • You install our program on a tablet or a smartphone.
  • You mount a phone/tablet on the platform of the SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot.
  • You run the program (app).
  • The program identifies the user (first start) and asks to enter his name or recognizes the user by his face (repeated start).
  • The speech recognition program (from Ok Google) starts running. Depending on the settings, the pronounced phrase is heard through and analyzed during 30 seconds as a whole, or is heard through and analyzed piece by piece.
  • The phrase is recognized and sent to the Chatbot on Botlibre.
  • Botlibre sends back the response to the program.
  • The program synthesizes the voice using Microsoft SAPI.
  • Further on, if the conversation keeps going, the process is repeated. The conversation can last indefinitely long.
  • You can upload your avatar on the SelfieBot Endurance ChatBot.
  • You can train the ChatBot the way you like.

This is the program interface in the developer’s version.

In the final user version the screen displays only your Chatbot’s avatar.

It will take you less than 2 hours to install and setup your robot-companion.

The SelfieBot Endurance ChatBot supports 2 languages so far: Russian and English.

Here a ChatBot’s version:

You can approach your SelfieBot Endurance ChatBot with any topic. Only bear in mind that the more you communicate with it, the more it learns. So try not to clutter up your Bot’s knowledge with poor and low-quality information.

Who and what for needs it

First and foremost this solution may be used for training by those who dream to create one’s own real robot-companion, including university and high school students. The platform is open-source, so don’t hesitate to share the results of your work with friends and colleagues.

What counts most is that you can use the created robot in everyday life.

Creating the robot, you acquire knowledge and practice in developing embedded solutions for Android 4 / 5 / 6, and Windows 7 / 8 / 10, and work experience with:

  • Java,
  • С++,
  • AIML Markup language,
  • OpenCV,
  • JSON requests.

In addition you can separately configure a SelfieBot. For this you will need understanding of Arduino, electronics and basic 3D prototyping and printing.

platforma2

Every enthusiast can create his own robot-companion for home and business.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfFyus8TNJ8&t=7s

One can use a robot-companion for scientific and practical purposes.

As:

  • A platform for integration with physical (wheeled, for instance) robots like a robot-waiter, one mile delivery, a telepresence robot, etc.
  • A robot-teacher of foreign languages.
  • A robot-receptionist аt the reception desk.
  • A robot-companion for senior people.

What we offer

  • A SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot , “as is” open-source project, for which you will need our application and a set of electronics.
  • Support.
  • Tuition.
  • Development of a ready ChatBot for a particular order or a business case.
  • A basic kit of electronics for a SelfieBot Endurance Chatbot or for a 3D printed robot.

To create a robot-companion you will need a 3D printer and knowledge of electronics and schematics.

As the project is open-source, you can find the full description of its assembling and configuration on our website: endurancerobots.com/en/robots/diy-selfiebot/

Or order a ready DIY SelfieBot for only $195 + shipping cost.

In the source code there are a few open settings:

bot_app_id=1156124978941390219 // ChatBot’s name for connection

bot_instance_id=14142865 // profile name

bot_address=www.Botlibre.com // connection address to Botlibre server

recogn_lang=en-US // speech synthesis language

speech_lang=409 // speech recognition language

google_key=AIzaSyBT3lf4Z3mM5vyEEGJTWSM_T77sKpdDrUk // connection key to Ok Google for speech recognition

sound_record_level=10000 // relative level of the audio signal for automatic speech recognition start

pause_record_msec=2000 // duration of the last pause before a phrase is sent to Ok Google to be recognized

speech_speed=0 // relative speech synthesis speed

Other settings can be additionally done.

The project opens great opportunities in learning the technology of ChatBot creation and acquiring work experience in this technology.

The project tasks at hand:

  1. Develop an application for iOS.
  2. Create a robot-reception (visitors registration). http://www.slideshare.net/GeorgeFomitchev/selfiebot-application-for-retail-shops-or-stores http://www.slideshare.net/GeorgeFomitchev/selfiebot-receptionist
  3. Create a more user-friendly interface (UX/UI).
  4. Create machine learning. Ensure conversion of unstructured texts into structured ones suitable for ChatBots.
  5. Create a universal robot-companion for senior people.

How the robot-companion works

The robot-companion hears the speech addressed to it and gives answers based on the programmed variants of answers. In case of their lack it uses third-party search tools, Google, for instance. When the answer is found, the robot gives it to its companion.

The third-party search can be easily configured and activated when the other person asks questions to which answers are not programmed. And also, when the interlocutor commands, “find”, “learn”, etc.

How it is configured

The system of ChatBot learning is very simple:

  • Templates are uploaded: question / answer.
  • Unstructured texts are uploaded as freebase for independent ChatBot learning.
  • When the answer does not correspond to the question the administrator or the user can offer an improved version of the answer (depending on the learning settings).
  • Usage of XML / JSON requests to get the data to be imported to the ChatBot.

How it works

  1. ChatBot creation on Botlibre.
  2. ChatBot learning.
  3. One’s Google key registration to use «Ok Google» speech recognition.
  4. Program installation on a tablet Windows / Android.
  5. Tablet mounting on the DIY SelfieBot holder.
  6. Make necessary changes in the *.cfg. file
  7. Program start

 

Use and enjoy the robot-companion.
