Designing An Android Sensor Subsystem: Pitfalls and Considerations – Android Builder Summit 2012
Jen Costillo of Lab 126 discusses the Android sensor subsystem at the Android Builder Summit in February 2012.
This lecture will arm Android device architects with the tactical knowledge they need to navigate the Android Sensor subsystem and make knowledgeable design choices to improve user experience and improve battery performance. The talk will address:
- Hardware architecture and trade-offs including latency, power, and software architecture implications:
- Wake up events and power considerations
- Gesture Detection Algorithm processing location and considerations
- Testing methodologies (Creating tools to aid develop and collect data.
This talk targets the kernel/firmware developer responsible for the sensor architecture. They should be familiar with kernel drivers, embedded systems, hardware bring up, Android services, and the C language.
