Reachy Mic Array

Bonjour

The Reachy robot contains a ReSpeaker Mic Array, is there any code inside the Reachy repositories to communicate with this Mic Array?
If not, I could work on it with new code and it could potentionally be used for the Reachy code itself.

With kind regards,

Hi @NathanSegers,

There is no official API to use the microphone on Reachy yet. On our side we used http://people.csail.mit.edu/hubert/pyaudio/ to directly access it.
It would really be awesome if you can work on this and share it with the community!
Let me know if I can help you.

Cheers
Pierre

I have found some code on this website which can read the Direction Of Arrival and the Voice Activation Detection.
https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/ReSpeaker_Mic_Array_v2.0/
The code documented there seems to work perfectly, however, some configurations are necessary on the Raspberry Pi in order to directly access the USB device.

I will check out Pyaudio to work with the audio files generated by the Microphone.

My colleague and I will work it out as much as possible, and share it with the community.

We will keep you posted!
