The control systems of modern robots are multilevel. The upper level control of the transport robot by voice commands and simulation of its motion in the software product Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio are considered. Visual Programming Language for creating and debugging applications was used to simulate the motion of the transport robot. An Android tablet or mobile phone with an application is used to recognize voice commands and the robot can be controlled using the Bluetooth interface. A program has been developed that will allow a human to control the robot using speech. An example of simulation of the robot and its motion path using voice control is given. The developed control system allows the transport robot to follow from one target point to another using voice control. At a low level, optimal asynchronous motor based actuator control using a model oriented approach in SimInTech is considered.
