Android Multi-Windows With Wind River User Experience Module

Wind River Solution Accelerators for Android are currently available in three software modules:

  1. User Experience:
    • Accelerated boot time technologies including Hyper boot enabling devices to resume from RAM in less than 1 second and from Flash in 8 seconds. This technology can speed up the Android boot time by 30%. It is hardware agnostic and can run on different hardware platforms with little or no customization effort.

    • Multi-windowing screen navigation aimed at devices with larger screens such as tablets, automotive infotainment systems, media phones, and industrial devices. The application windows are sized based on the remaining portion of the visible screen and users can minimize, resize, and arrange them as they wish. (See Picture on top)
    • Media Center is a DLNA compliant media hub with a Digital Media Server (DMS), Digital Media Player (DMP) and Digital Media Controller (DMC).
    • Firmware management system that supports both online and offline update methods, can recover from error and prevent malicious attacks.
  2. Connectivity:
    • DLNA support for the Media Center in the User Experience module.
    • SyncML support for a standardized way to synchronize several devices.
    • FM radio with both FM receiver and the FM transmitter functions.

  3. Medical:
    • IEEE 11073 stack support. IEEE 11073 is the format for information exchange between personal health devices such as weight scales, blood pressure monitors and blood oxygen monitors. The module currently provides interoperability with the following Continua-compliant devices:
      • Nonin Onyx II pulse oximeter, model 9560
      • A&D blood pressure monitor (UA-767PBT-C)
      • A&D weight scale (UC-321PBT-C)
    • Bluetooth Health Device Protocol implementation
    • Applications for medical sensor management and resulting data display, reporting and communication.

Wind River explains that it has recently used its Android expertise with companies such as Clarion, Fujitsu and Leadcore Technology on a diverse range of Android implementations.
