Transcript of "Android powered internet of things"
Internet of Things
POLITEHNICA UNIVERSITY OF TIMISOARA
ADVANCED COMPUTING SYSTEMS AND ARCHITECTURES LABORATORY
Songdo, South Korea
first of its kind fully equipped and wired smart city
$40 billion in 10 years;
“With Android, you get
something that is
easy for developers to
do the user interface
controls, and it’s easy
to get data in and out”
What is IoT ?
uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an
Internet-like structure [Ashton99]
“[…] the expanding interconnectedness of smart devices, ranging
from sensors in your shoe to jet engine monitors” [BusinessWeek]
Each object can be connected via other objects (usually via third
party) to exchange data.
Roots in the M2M.
The third age of the Internet
What do we need ?
2D codes: QR … or the more obscure ones: Aztec, Data
Matrix, HCCB, PDF417
Digital watermarking: adding auth. data to a “signal”;
IPv6: there would be more IP addresses available than things.
“Every screen variant, mobile chip, and sensor known to man has been
tuned to work with Android” – [Jim Zemlin, Linux Foundation]
Bluetooth Smart (Low
“Where as classic
Bluetooth devices measure
their battery life in
hours, Bluetooth Smart
devices measure their
battery in months or even
- proximity detection
- vitals monitoring
Implementation … issues
Lack of standardization;
Size: it’s going to be huge. From 50 to 100 trillion of moving things
Time constraints: “extremely hard real-time system”: billion of
Position tracking: things have to know their neighbors and interact
The shear quantity of data is way above what we can process
now … or not !?
Internet of Isolated Things
Systems running on a smaller scale: size and area;
Informationally isolated to the “big IoT” private
Safety critical systems.
Sensors and sensor networks …

Framework for real time data logging
Smart product management
Soft stuff -;)
Accessory Development Kit
a reference implementation for hardware manufacturers and hobbyists to use as a
starting point for building accessories for Android
“new and alternative hardware based on the ADK is encouraged!” [Release notes]
Android accessories can be audio docking stations, exercise machines, personal
medical testing devices, weather stations, or any other external hardware device
that adds to the functionality of Android.
Hard stuff -;)
Bluetooth via Amarino
Android@Home: I/O 2007
software framework for Android that allows programmers to interact with various
connected appliances such as light bulbs, thermostats, washing machines and more.
