NIZHNY NOVGOROD, RUSSIA, July 15, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- VoicePilot is an application based on Ubiquitous Plug and Play Framework for cognitive M2M communications created by researchers from Mera Labs company. VoicePilot allows to turn user gadgets such as Android smartphones and tablet PCs into universal remote control for any kind of Smart TV devices based on Andorid OS. Users can input text data into Smart TV boxes using native keyboards of their favorite gadgets or even by voice, just pronouncing whatever they want.
As Nikolay Mikhaylov, the project leader at Mera Labs, said: "VoicePilot is an application that allows users to turn their favorite gadgets, like smartphones and tablet PCs, into a universal remote control for their Smart TV boxes. VoicePilot allows you to use your smartphone's touchscreen as a touchpad and navigate the user interface of your networked media player. You can input search queries e.g. your favorite YouTube videos using your gadget's keyboard instead of native controls which may not be suitable for the task. Moreover you can use voice to input information: everything you say will be inputted into the player interface as text".
According to Vladimir Krylov, the Chief Technology Officer of Mera Labs: "VoicePilot application can run on smartphones, tablet computers and Smart TV boxes on Google Android OS. The beta version of our application is available at Google Play application store. We position VoicePilot as an application for an average consumer with an inexpensive networked media player. Unlike hi-end units these inexpensive set-top boxes usually don't benefit from innovative solutions like VoicePilot. If you have a $200 media player and VoicePilot application, you can turn your ordinary old TV into a fully-functional Smart TV. We expect VoicePilot application to stimulate the sales of inexpensive Smart TV boxes".
