Google Pi using Raspberry Pi

SKU: PAN_RPI_002 Categories: ,


In this Google Pi, Raspberry Pi is used as a core system. Respeaker a 4 Mic array is connected with Raspberry Pi to receive voice commands from a distance. For Object recognition and Currency recognition, Deep learning is used. For Voice assistance and YouTube Google API is used and also customized. It will be a friendly device for blind people. For object and currency recognition Web camera or Mobile camera can be interfaced with the Raspberry Pi.


Nowadays, there are a lot of Voice assistance devices such as Amazon Echo, Google Home Mini, etc. Likewise this Google Pi is also one kind of voice assistant device which is mainly for visually impaired people to fulfil their needs. It has 4 Great Features, they are

  • Currency Recognition?? This will be helpful for Blind people while doing Purchase
  • Object Recognition?? This will be helpful to know the object or vehicle present in front of them
  • Voice assistance?? This will be helpful for asking about the weather, General?knowledge, Jokes, etc.
  • YouTube support ? This will be helpful to listen to music and any other educational audio from YouTube Video


In the existing system, there are a lot of disadvantages which stopped only up to voice assistance, none other than features. Some device works only by getting the voice input from the USB Mic which should be placed near to the mouth, else input given through mobile


  • Hard to setup
  • Needs more components
  • Needs to give voice command directly to mic
  • Not possible control from distance


In this proposed system, all old disadvantages get broken by this new Google Pi. Through deep?Learning application classifications are more accurate, for voice assistant by using Google API?the responses are faster as well as more accurate. Re-speaker a 4 Mic array, helps to give voice?command from distance and from any direction


  • Can give voice command from anywhere in the room
  • Easy to setup compared to old methods
  • Accuracy of output is increased
  • User friendly system
