Milestone MS5

MS5: First version of Nao prototype with new algorithms for audition and interaction
WP number: 5 (with input from WPs 1, 2, 3, 4)
Lead beneficiary: ALD
Delivery date: 23.12.2015

Description: Based on the microphone arrays of MS4, robust versions with acceptable complexity
of the algorithms of WP2, WP3 and WP4 are incorporated into the available hardware platform
of Nao. This includes first versions of the algorithms resulting from T2.1-T2.7, T3.2, T4.2, T4.4.
Verification by demonstration; benchmarking relative to existing Nao robot audition, with
respect to source localization and tracking performance, and speech recognition rate in noisy
and reverberant environments, with competing speech and other acoustic sources.

Verification: First version of Nao prototype can be demonstrated to track a single desired target and
perform speech recognition in the targeted noisy and reverberant ‘welcome robot scenario’.
