The Android™ Builders Summit is a technical summit for OEMs, their device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders, and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities. Android is expanding to an increasing number of industry segments in addition to smart phones and tablets. There is a need for the ecosystem of builders to collaborate on a common solution for existing limitations and desired features across all of these device categories. The Android Builders Summit provides an intimate forum for collaboration at the systems level and discussion of core issues and opportunities when designing Android devices. The summit addresses topics ranging from custom builds, alternative middleware, network functionality extensions, Peer to Peer frameworks, USB device support, security, unification of power management, tools and hybrid Android devices among many other topics.

Integrating Sensors into Android Hardware - Rian Sanderson, Sensor Platforms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you want to add more sensors to an android device or just replace the poor quality ones that are there? The source code for doing this is technically out there but it's hard to make out the big picture of how it all goes together. This presentation will provide a map of how sensors interact with Android from silicon on up to apps, then will dive deep into implementing the Android Sensors Hardware Abstraction Layer interface and how it interfaces to the underlying Linux infrastructure. Whether you've never put together your own Android device, don't have much experience with sensors, or are an experienced embedded Linux developer, you'll get something from this talk. Expect block diagrams, hand waving, code examples, links to public repositories and information on up-to date devices.
