Google Assistant Available via Ham Radio

William Franzin VE4VR decided it would be particularly cool to make Google Assistant available over ham radio – and that’s exactly what he did

William got the idea for this project after first playing with the Internet Radio Linking Project, a system which uses VoIP technologies to link radio networks over the internet. Already having an IRLP node, it seemed only natural to make it into a gateway to the wider internet through integration with Google Assistant.

Early work involved activating the assistant via DTMF tones, but William didn’t stop there – through the use of Picovoice, it became possible to use the system with the custom wakeword “Bumblebee”.
