DIRHA - An Application (A Showcase Video)

Mon, Jun 01, 2015

In December 2014 we successfully finished our international project entitled ‘Distant-speech Interaction for Robust Home Application’, also known as DIRHA. Our main goal was to set up a prototype in our laboratory that could be controlled by Austrian German speech interaction. We would like to present the prototype by showing you a video.

It is about an application of this distant-speech interacting system’s prototype named DIRHA. Two attendees control lights and blinds by interacting with the system acoustically. They activate it by saying a keyword and instruct it to do something. In case of unclear or ambiguous instructions, the system automatically asks specific questions leading to answers containing the required information.
