ECA Based Device Automation Using Internet of Things

Authors(3) :-Poornima P, Shobana K , Venkatesh S

The automation industry has experienced rapid growth over the last decade. The aim of the proposed work is to automate appliances in Home/Industry using Internet of things (IoT). The system focuses on human-friendly technical solutions for easy control of appliances. Embodied conversational agent (ECA) based Android application is used to receive speech input from the user. Simple object access protocol (SOAP) is used to transfer the information from client to server. The remote server processes the commands received and translates them into actions of switching particular appliances ON or OFF. A novel embedded system has been designed, implemented and a small-scale prototype is developed and tested.
