We would like to have the wake up word detection allow more detection. Meaning that we only seem to get about 40% recognition of our wake up word. We have tried “robot”, “heyrobot”, “hayrobot”, “hellorobot” and many many others without better results. My son is 20 and I’m 59. We set the circuit boards on a pillow and also tried mounting in a vice (holds it very firm) and nothing has seemed to improve recognition. Our use of MOVI does not require robust rejection of spoken wakeup words, but the acceptance of any close resemblance of the wakeup word.
What can we do to increase the recognition of our wakeup word, even at the expense of waking up when it maybe should not have? We would rather it wake up with any loudly spoken English, any English, or even a dog barking, than what is does now, which feels like it’s ignoring you.
Once the word is recognized, it works very well to recognize the correct sentence we spoke, and follow our program.
