TODO list:

  • Far field microphone array for better voice capture (more distance, noise environments), like in Amazon Alexa;
  • Low power voice activation mechanism. For example, FPGA based algorithm for continuous microphone monitoring for activation phrases (“Hey Joker” or another configured phrase).
