Smart kitchen voice operated assistant to help automate your food routines, such as planning meals and grocery store visits.

The challenge was to find a proper solution for microphones and voice triggering to enable the device with far-field voice recognition feature. Finally we stopped at Analog Devices BF704 ADSP for 4-mic microphone array and STM32 for voice triggering. Meantime, the product contains a swivel gear, that complicates the voice processing algorithms. We cooperated with Sensory to develop a custom voice trigger phrase. Finally, we delivered a fully functional prototypes with demo scenarios.
