Using Android for industrial and realtime systems

A session at Open World Forum 2013

  • Pierre Ficheux

Friday 4th October, 2013

4:00pm to 5:00pm (PMT)

Android is one the most (free) operating system used these days as more than 70 % of smartphones runs it. One can call it a "Linux based OS" as it runs a Linux kernel but it's not "another Linux distribution". We will introduce several ways to adapt standard open source components to Android (user or kernel space). Additionally, we'll focused on realtime as RT is a common feature for embedded systems. Finally we'll evaluate Android capabilities regarding Linux RT patches such as PREEMPT-RT or Xenomai.
