Mouser Electronics Signs Global Distribution Deal with Fortebit

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, announces a global distribution agreement with Fortebit, designers and manufacturers of high-quality, cost-effective solutions for embedding voice recognition, speech playback capabilities, and location services. Through the agreement, the Fortebit product line available from Mouser includes the EasyVR 3 Plus speech recognition devices and Polaris vehicle IoT platform.

EasyVR 3 Plus is a multipurpose speech recognition module that enables designers to easily add versatile, robust and cost-effective speech recognition capabilities to almost any application. The EasyVR 3 Plus module can be used with any host with a UART interface powered at 3.3V – 5V, such as Arduino and Microchip PIC boards. The module allows up to 256 user-defined speaker dependent (SD) or speaker verification (SV) commands that can be trained in any language, divided into maximum 16 groups (up to 32 SD or five SV commands each). A selection of 26 built-in speaker independent (SI) commands enable ready-to-run basic controls in six languages. With the optional Quick T2SI Lite license, users can add up to 28 custom speaker-independent command vocabularies, with up to 12 commands each, for a total of 336 possible commands.

The Quick T2SI Lite text-to-speaker-independent (T2SI) software incorporates the latest advances in neural networks, combined with Hidden Markov Modeling, to create a powerful phonemic recogniser, using text entry to create, edit, build, and download embedded vocabularies to the EasyVR. To further aid development, Mouser stocks the EasyVR 3 Plus Shield for Arduino, which allows designers to use the EasyVR 3 Plus module with any Arduino Uno R3-compatible board. Providing everything needed to start developing with the EasyVR, the EasyVR 3 Plus development kit includes the EasyVR 3 Plus speech recognition module, the QuickT2SI Lite software license, the EasyVR Shield for Arduino, and the QuickUSB cable to program the module.

Polaris is a Python-programmable, Arduino-compatible open source Internet of Things (IoT) platform, designed for remote logging and cloud applications. Polaris is designed with features like geofencing, real-time tracking, analog sensors, external commands, audio, and SMS. The Polaris Vehicle IoT platform is available as a standalone board in three wireless technology options — 2G, 3G, or NB-IoT — or in corresponding kits (2G, 3G, or NB-IoT) that include a black aluminum case, GPS/Glonass/GSM antenna, and optional lithium battery. Both the standalone platform and kit are ready for use as a vehicle tracker as well as other IoT or industrial applications.
