Project Objectives


Research for an MP3 player system that uses IDE Interface and USB



Research for a voice recognition software



Research a way to transmit our voice to the MP3 player from a distance



Analyze how Bluetooth or infrared technology functions and how data is
received and transmitted



Understand how voice recognition software works



Extract transmitted data from the Bluetooth or infrared



Input extracted data to voice recognition software



Get the software and Bluetooth or infrared data to work in sync



Present a fully functioning MP3 player that will work with voice recognition and
Bluetooth or infrared

6

Tasks


Come up with a suitable MP3 player design



Find an MP3 player that can be connected to a
computer, has wireless remote capabilities, and
also has voice recognition capabilities



Purchase parts and Test

Existing Research


Found types of MP3 players



Functionality


Stop, Play, Next, Previous



None had ability to do voice recognition



Only on car systems but are used for more
than music



Home systems don’t have this technology
