I am looking for advice on a project I am thinking about completing (for experience etc..)
My project is triggering a set of traffic lights (simulation) using Speech recognition. In theory, I want to use a HMM (Hidden Markov model) to determine whether someone wants to cross the road or not, this can be determined by someone saying "Yes" and then if there is white-noise, or, the Phones "Yes" is not present it can infer that no-one wants to cross and therefore there is no need to trigger the lights.
I'm looking for advice in whether this can be done using an HMM? I have some experience in both of these I just need to know whether it would be a good idea to use an HMM / Viberti algorithm
I hope someone can help me,
