Voice assistant for industrial environments

DESCRIPTION

Agilean offers an operations management and optimisation SaaS web app (ALIX - Smart Assistant) as well as digital transformation and operational efficiency consulting services and training.
ALIX - Smart Assistant monitors and optimizes resources, equipment (IIoT) and stock (raw materials, Work In Process (WIP) and finished goods) in real time as well as offering complete documents management.

This project aims to design a system that listens to and enhances voice signal in industrial environments, in order to implement voice recognition as a means of interacting with ALIX. In the current use case, the system will be deployed in multiple factories with varying noise pollution levels and features. In addition, a user may have to move from an environment type to another, hence the system has to dynamically adapt to changing conditions and must only respond to its user’s voice. The project therefore involves designing a wearable device  integrated to a vest, that captures workers’ voice using a microphone array and enhances the signal using machine learning models tailored to every factory’s unique noise profile. This then opens the door to the implementation of a smart voice interface to robotic systems in industrial environments.
