Getting Started with Android Development for Embedded Devices
On-demand Web Seminar
This session takes a look at the design of Android, how it works and how it may be deployed to accelerate the development of a connected device.
Android is an open source platform built by Google that includes an operating system, middleware and applications for the development of devices employing cellular communications.
Along with guidelines to getting started with Android, the Android SDK, its available tools and resources will be reviewed and consideration given to applications for Android beyond conventional mobile handsets such as medical devices, consumer electronics and military/aerospace systems. A review of how Android can co-exist with an RTOS in multi-core designs will also be conducted.
What You Will Learn
- What the Android platform is and how it works
- How Android facilitates the implementation of cellular communication for non-handset applications
- What tools and services are available to help deploy Android
- How Android co-exists with an RTOS in multi-core designs
Who Should View
- Embedded developers and System architects interested in deploying Android
- Technical managers
- System architects considering Android for the application of cellular telephony for machine-to-machine applications
