Gostai and Acapela Partner
Gostai, a company dedicated to Artificial Intelligence applied to Robotics, chose Acapela text-to-speech to voice animate its platform.
Gostai aims to provide robot manufacturers and end-users with a universal robotic platform with software modules (speech technologies, face detection, etc.) in partnership with robotic software companies and academic research labs.
Gostai's core technology is URBI, the Universal Real-time Behavior Interface, used to control hardware and software components. Acapela text-to-speech contributes to giving a voice to the Gostai offer, allowing robot manufacturers to voice animate their interface.
URBI gives a way to control any robot or complex system like a video game, using a scripting language that can be interfaced with several programming languages (C++, Java, Matlab, etc.) and OS (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux). URBI is based on a client/server architecture. URBI includes features compared to existing scripting solutions: parallel execution of commands, event programming, command tagging, dynamic variables, and others.
Gostai also offers various professional tools for developers: URBI Development Studio, URBI Motion Editor, or URBI Remote Professional.
