Arduino Driving via Microphone Sensor

I'm looking to steer an Arduino Robot via a microphone sensor. With voice commands it will turn left, right, stop, go, and turn around. If this a feasible project with the robot and sensor given down below? I'm fairly new to Arduino and coding. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Is this a feasible project with the robot and sensor given down below?

Sorry no.
You can't do voice recognition on a normal Arduino Uno. You need a separate voice recognition shield, even so the results are not very good.

Thank you very much Grumpy_Mike. Would it be possible to use one of the other sensors and have the robot drive itself away from obstacles?

Sorry I don't know what you mean by this. What other sensors?

The sensor kit,http://www.radioshack.com/make-it-robotics-sensor-kit/2770172.html#q=robot&start=1, contains an optical, microphone, and infrared sensor. Is it possible to use the infrared or motion sensor to detect an object in front of the robot, within a given distance, and steer away from that object?

Well the IR sensor would need a source of IR to detect. A motion detector would detect the motion of the robot.

You could use a range sensor or proximity sensor however.

Would the optical sensor work to do something along those lines? Would it be able to avoid obstacles once they get to close?

Test it and see what range it has.

That's where I get lost. I'm unfamiliar with arduino and how to go about the programming. I checked the specs on it, however, and it says a distance of 20mm which is about 0.7 inches.

and it says a distance of 20mm which is about 0.7 inches.

So that will be a no then.

I know that's a very short distance, but is it possible to do it with that sensor? It just wont be as efficient as it could be with a better sensor?

but is it possible to do it with that sensor?

I would have thought not.
