Google announced Android Things – its new operating system designed specially for Internet of Things.

It thrives on the quote:

If you can build an app, you can build a device with the ease and power of Android.

Focus on the Android ecosystem: Leverage existing Android development tools, APIs, resources, and a thriving developer community.

Empower with New APIs for IoT devices: Develop with new Android framework APIs that provide low level I/O and libraries for common components like temperature sensors, display controllers, and more.

Advantage – Trusted security: Take advantage of regular best-in-class security updates by building on top of the Android OS.

The focus with Android Things OS is to be able to create IoT products and integrate devices in a way that is connected to the Internet.

It’s just a matter of time that we will be monitoring the refrigerators, fan, lights, routers etc at our home right from our smartphones.

Google’s Android Things operating system is built on Brillo, an operating system announced in 2015 by Google and specifically designed for the Internet of things.

Google has said that it will partner with SoC (system on a chip) makers to build certified development boards containing development modules like RAM, Flash Storage, WiFi, Bluetooth and other components. It is currently recommending using NXP Pico, Raspberry Pi 3, Intel Edison,  etc among other devices, as its developer kits.

The focus is clear and simple. Google wants developers across the globe, anyone who can design and create an app to be able to build devices running on Android Things. 

Internet of Things is without a doubt a clear core trend maker for the year of 2017 and its here to stay. But the big focus now is towards the fact that anyone who can make an app can now build IoT devices. My guess is, just like with android apps, there will soon be more open source platforms, easy to use developer kits that will allow users to create their own IoT devices using development modules like Rasberry Pi 3 etc which are accessible for purchase across the globe.

So, what are you going to build?


Best Regards & BE WELL
