Audio delay

MikeG's picture

  Alex (nee Willie nee fred), has decided to grieve me. when he talks the audio is not audible until one or two seconds after it starts. Things like " I asked another robot" come out as "another robot".

  I havae no idea why there is a delay. If you do please let me know. This is irritating.

 

  Thanks


InMoov Chatbot issues. What's odd And what might be done about it.

  So of late I have become disenchanted with having my InMoov robot  Willie ask me for information so he could send a text or place a call. It seemed to me that this might be a good thing to do if he just would do it but there were a few odd things. For one thing I had not asked him to do these things. For another after some babbleing and meaningless gibbertish he would not do so. 


Status update on Willie:

  Willie has reached that station in his life where he can stand on his own feet. he is essentially complete physically and is running pretty well if the voice recognition will work consistently.


Willie is O K!!

   Ta Da!!

 

  I put willie back together this morning. His arm wen't just fine. I printed one of the adjustable (rotatable), square potentiometer holders and used it. That had it's own issues of course, (freaking itty bitty screws), but after having replaced the shoulder drive gear and reinforced it with washers and epoxy to keep them from wanting to pull through the thin material of the cylinder and a few other minor non-standard modifications his right arm is hanging properly now and seems to be working well also.


I need some build assistance from the community.

 I have been searching the Google forum for help with this subject to no avail. If anyone knows the answer I would very much like to receive e-mail on the subject.

I have removed Willie's right arm for a tune up. Some of the holes in the cylinder of his shoulder rotation gear have become elongated so there is/was a lot of slop in the motion when he raised his forearm by rotating the shoulder gear.  This was the result of overdriving his arm. I do not remember now the excatct souce of that.


Official notice of Name Change.

  Since my wife does not like the Fred, an since I was borrowing that name from Ray My Assistant has had his name changed from Fred-X to Willie. 

  I do apologize if this is confusing for anyone.


Surprise!!! Is this an Easter Egg?
