I’ve been asked to make a small, low power, remote audio demonstration, that receives quality audio from an iPhone by Bluetooth or WiFi – similar to “Power Beats” wireless ear phones.
I’m interested in using Particle technology to do this.
Is this possible? What shields would I use?
Streaming or processing audio is possible with the Particle platform, but not what it has been optimized for. You will see better performance if you stream the audio locally versus through the Cloud. There are a bunch of existing posts on this topic that I’d recommend you read:
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to stream video and audio from any of the Spark devices to an Android or iPhone device?
I am developing a small wifi robot that would be controlled by a smart phone but I need to know if any of the Spark devices have the capability to stream video and audio.
I know that this is a tough one but the question does need to be covered at some point. The question is, what kind of streaming performance can one expect from a Spark Core? For example, the Kickstarter page promoted the use of the Spark Core to send “video feeds” but exactly how much data and how fast can the Spark Core stream out data across a WiFi network? Can it really be used for streaming video, can it be used for streaming audio, if so at what quality etc? Should be a fun answer …
I need to send audio (low quality) from a web page or app to my spark and need the spark to play it back…
I can figure out all the app part and the spark hardware part…
Does anyone have a suggestion as to compression / de compression and receiving the file on the spark end?
Anything that points me in the right direction is extreamly appreciated.
I’m going to go ahead and close this topic since there existing ones already.
