Recently Google launched 'Android Things', an Android-based device OS for the Internet of Things. Google released a developer's preview of 'Android Things'. Even though nascent, it gives a glimpse of its possibilities. We'll present an overview of the operating system, including:

1. Some advantages and disadvantages

2. Currently supported hardware

3. Setting up a Raspberry Pi, as the "thing"

4. The development environment (hint: mostly Android Studio)

5. The programming framework

There will be a demo of blinking an LED, detecting a button press, and logging a button press.


John Lindsay ( developed the Smooth Driver Monitoring ( Android app, which monitors driver behavior using smartphones from accelerometer and GPS data.
