Homemade Voice Recognition Attached to a Drone

My sister for Christmas recently was gifted a drone and for her Birthday next year I would like to attach a device that could control the drone using voice recognition using an arduino. She has a Navig8r Air 20 drone and I am unsure if it is possible on such a small drone. Also I am not an expert in iStem as I have only done the course for one year as an elective in Year 9 and I know the basics of coding, soldering, 3-D printing, gears, electricity, mechatronics, newton’s law. Is it possible for someone like me with limited knowledge to create this project to the best of my ability.
Thank you

Hi Emily,

Very cool project idea! The only problem I can see is controlling the drone with an Arduino. I’m not sure how you would interface those two devices, and a quick Google didn’t turn up anything.

Voice recognition can be very complicated, and generally speaking isn’t possible with Arduino. That said, you can use something like the Google Home Mini to recognized voice commands and then link that to an IoT Android device. Here is a project example:

Let me know if you have any more questions!
