    Hi everyone. Do you know any simple projects that detecting voice/sound of animals (hardware) (thru signalling) in any application? like dog, cat, frog... etc.
    Thank you in advance. :rolleyes:

    I don't think any such project would qualify as "simple".

    To do that would likely require some sort of spectrum analyzer (FFT) circuit with a microprocessor to analyze the output and, as wayneh noted, that's not "simple".

    Buy a copy of Dragon Naturally Speaking and make your dog recite words into the microphone.

    Not going to happen?

    Maybe now you understand why analyzing the voices of several different species is not a trivial job. If you just want to detect louder than usual sounds, that's easy enough. Analyzing them goes straight into the world of high tech.

    Yup, the best tool for this job is a human.

    I am wrong by the word simple. But do you know any existing ones that detecting frequency aside from guitar tuner? Like using mcu.

    Train a dog to work a switch mounted on him/her when the sound is heard.
    or a bird, or...

    I believe some bat detector gadgets can differentiate between bat species on a frequency basis?
