I would like to develop an embedded device for monitoring environment parameters and send data to server via the Internet. It is not a wireless application, and it is not a smart phone application. Is Android also a good solution for embedded device, what do you think? Is it a good experience for you to develop applications with Android? I have some experience with WindRiver Workbench and ...

A customer wants both apps in 2 weeks. Gee, i can barely do Android in two weeks. iOS is completely new to me. I can run ADK on Linux. Are there iOS tools available on Linux? How about Android Java to iOS obj C translator? Any good tools i can pickup in less than 2 weeks? I keep telling them i cannot do iOS in two weeks, but they are tempting me with big checks. Perhaps enoug

Watched the TV announcement. Interesting name. Right physical size, but fat. At least they didn't call it "lemon". Seem to have active app list. Badly needed for Android. For Android, can't tell if an app is active until you bring it up. Google might need to "flatter" Microsoft on this.

Hi All, I am a mobile application developer and this is the first time i have entered into developing an embedded application from scratch. I know that the title is a bit misleading and there will be rebuts in the grounds that Android is an OS and Qt is a framework and C/C++ is a language. Let me explain my requirement. I need to develop an embedded device which will be installed in a veh...

Perhaps there is a better Android group somewhere, but this is the closest i can think of. Question: What is the best place to store local app files, hopefully works for most Andorids? For example, "/data/local" seems to be a logical place, but i have to root the phone and open the directory for read/write. I need someplace that will always work without customization. For a Sa

Hi, Well, I've been stymied trying to find 4-5" 4:3 LCD touch panels (I did find a nice one at 5" but have yet to chase down the manufacturer for availability). Rather than wait, I am begrudgingly looking at a cheap ($50) 7" tablet to advance a bit further towards a real "beta". Tablet runs Android. So, I can either figure out how to root the thing (and then hope I can find docs on t...

I'm looking for some ideas or suggestions here. We have an embedded system based around a small microcontroller (an AVR XMega, IIRC), connected to a PC using an FTDI chip and a USB cable, with a little PC program to control and monitor the embedded system. This all works fine. The customer would like to know if they can use tablets (Android or iPad - and maybe Android and iPad telephone...

Hi Folks (and pardon me if I'm not on topic)- I'm looking for a way to synchronize some code activity to the Android display frame rate. It's a short bit of code that will simply set the color of a small display region, nothing more. Is there some sort of method or hook that I can exploit for this purpose? I can use a timer running at very fast intervals successfully but the renderin...

I have noticed that many of the inexpensive Android tablets (7") do not have Bluetooth. (I guess that helps make them cheap) By cheap I mean under $100 w/free shipping. As the previous posting "Controlling embedded devices from tables apps", Tables are getting cheap enough to "buy one to use on a single project". But the Bluetooth limitation makes it harder to find one. Thanks, ...

I'm trying to find a way to make a connection between a custom MCU-based device (accessory) and an Android device (smartphone or tablet). The goal is to exchange some data as with the old and good asyncronous serial (RS232/UART/RS485). My goal is to let the user configure the device through its smartphone, without power up a laptop or using local HMI (that will be surely worse than An...

I need protocol stacks for Android, including ADB, MSD, BEE, etc. Says Linux? It's too big and no native support for BEE (ZigBee). Says Atmel or Microchip? I've worked with both USB stacks. They are both very similar: inefficient and deficient. I wonder who copy whom. I've been porting and rewriting the microchip USB host stack. I came to the conclusion that it doesn't work with composi...

I'm designing an embedded system based on a Cortex-M0+ MCU. I have to choose a way to make a connection between this system and a generic Android smartphone. The requirements are low-cost, simplicity and availability with the most of smartphones on the market. I don't need long range: it's sufficient to exchange data when the smartphone is near the system. The embedded system has an ...

I need a very low-cost (50USD for quantity) touch panel running Android OS. I'll use only the LCD, the touch panel and a serial interface (RS485).

I don't need SD, Ethernet, WiFi, CAN, RTC, battery, Bluetooth and other nice th...

I want to put a remote weather station in Central Texas. There is no 3G there. It would be good to reduce components - using an Android phone as the only programmable part of the system, with a USB interface presumably. There is AC. Nothing is selected now. I'm not really well versed in the cellular data standards, but I know a little. Thoughts?

About every year when it comes to it I search some reasonable way to implement it and shortly after I give it upand go empty handed. Does anyone know how do MS and Android devices do it?
