NYJavaSIG - Java SE 8 for Devices -and- Creating a Brain for a Java Robot


Java SE 8 for Tablets, Pis, and Legos

This is not your grandfather's Java ME. Deep dive and demonstration on the new Java Embedded support for ARM processors. We will demonstrate the full power of Java 8 with lambdas running on embedded devices such as Raspberry Pi and PandaBoard, the new Lego Mindstorms EV3, and powering the Internet of Things with embeddable ARM processors. See end-to-end coding on devices, discuss coding practices for building performant applications, and learn how to kick-start your own crowd-sourced device project.

Creating a Brain for a Robot in Java

Created by Aldebaran Robotics, NAO (pronounced “now”) is a 58-cm tall humanoid robot with 25 degrees of freedom, designed to be fully and easily programmable.  With 2 cameras, accelerometer, gyrometer, touch sensors, 4 microphones and 25 motors, NAO is an innovative Linux device with some powerful capabilities in object recognition, face detection, text to speech and collision detection.

We will first introduce its basic software and hardware architecture.  Then we will demonstrate how to develop applications using the Java SDK, such as developing a brain for your robot in pure Java or creating a NAO remote controller using an Android mobile device.
