Anatomy of a Robot




Sensors               Motors


          Processor
Android can act as a ..
Sensor
  –   Accelerometer
  –   Camera
  –   Magnetic Compass
  –   GPS
  –   etc.


Processor
  – Native Java App
  – Android Scripting Environment (ASE)
Missing part is..
Missing part is..




           Motor
(and that’s where Arduino can help)
Arduino
•   Visual Basic for hardware
•   Includes both Hardware and software

We have Android (Sensors &
processor) and Arduino (Motor)
We have Android (Sensors &
processor) and Arduino (Motor)

    Let’s make them talk
Making them talk
• Over Bluetooth
• Over WIFI
• Over USB
   – ADK
   – Normal Way
• Over Audio Jacket
• Over GSM
• Over C2DM
• Others (NFC, Intermediate computer etc)
Over Bluetooth
You need
• Bluetooth Shield
• Library – Amarino - http://amarino-toolkit.net


Advantages
• Wired connection is not needed
• Can work from Android 1.5
• Two way communication


Disadvantages
• Power consumption is high
• Slightly slower when compared with others
• Range is limited
Over WIFI
You need
• Wifi Shield
• Wifi Connection


Advantages
• Wired connection is not needed
• Two way communication
• Can work from Android 1.5


Disadvantages
• Both should be present in the same network
• Power consumption is slightly high
Over USB Cable - ADK
You need
• ADK Board or USB Host Shield
• ADK SDK


Advantages
• Native support from Android
• Two way communication


Disadvantages
• Will work only in 2.3.4 +
• Wired Connection is needed
Over USB Cable – Socket &Logcat
You need
• USB Host Shield
• Library – Microbridge - http://code.google.com/p/microbridge/


Advantages
• Works in older versions as well
• Two way communication (Socket &Logcat)


Disadvantages
• Wired connection is needed
Over Audio Jacket
You need
• Male Audio Pin
• Pre-encoded Wave/MP3 files


Advantages
• Very compact
• Less power consumption


Disadvantages
• Only one way communication is possible
• Slightly difficult to get it to work
Over GSM
You need
• GSM ArduinoShiled
• Two sim cards


Advantages
• Range is unlimited
• Very simple to setup
• Two way communication is possible


Disadvantages
• Operating cost (SMS)
• Potential to abuse
Over C2DM
You need
• Ethernet or WifiArduino Shield
• C2DM account


Advantages
• Good for notifications
• Very easy to setup in Android side


Disadvantages
• Only one way communication is possible
• Works only from v2.2+
• Need Wifi connectivity
Other Options

Somenotablealternateoptions

• NFC (Near Field Communication)
• Using Computer as a intermediate transmitter
• USB Host support (in case of tablet or rooted phones)
Don’t throw away
your old phones ;)
