The “codama” voice interface development kit includes the XMOS VocalFusion XVF3100 voice processor; it enables AI engineers and developers to build a voice interface with NTT DOCOMO “AI Agent API” into their products. This technology brings people the freedom to control their electronic devices and access a wide range of IoT services by simply using their voice – wherever they are in the room and whatever is happening around them.
The XVF3100 delivers outstanding voice capture accuracy over long distances; its barge-in capability means the user can interrupt any music playing on the consumer device, even when it’s playing loudly, and the wake-word is spoken softly. Additionally, the XVF3100 uses beamforming to capture the direction of arrival of the voice command and track the person speaking as they move around the room. Sophisticated algorithms deliver acoustic echo cancellation, dereverberation and noise suppression, to capture the voice of interest and clean up the signal for onward send to the NTT DOCOMO “AI Agent API”.
Finally, Yukai have added an excellent personalization feature that lets people create their own wake-word on Yukai Engineering’s website and download it to their device.
