Speech Recognition Based Home Automation System using Raspberry Pi and Zigbee
In this era, there is a great revolution in the home automation industry. Considerable development in speech recognition software and wireless communication modules has given home automation a new edge. This system is very helpful for medical patients, disabled and elder people, especially those who live all alone without any helping hand. The home automation system is separated in two major sections, base station and remote station. The base station and remote station are wirelessly connected through low powered RF ZIGBEE wireless communication module, which is an IEEE 802.15.4 standard. For speech recognition purposes, one of the finest credit card sized computers, Raspberry pi, is used within the base station. All along with this a simple microcontroller is used to control the switching of electrical appliances and lights of home within remote station, which works according to the command generated from base station. The aim of this paper work is to design a speech recognition based home automation system which is most efficient, user friendly, low in cost, compact in size, easy to install and latest in technology.
