Beginning Android ADK with Arduino eBook

Beginning Android ADK with Arduino By Mario Bohmer
2012 | 316 Pages | ISBN: 1430241977 | EPUB + PDF | 9 MB + 10 MB

Learn how to use the Android Open Accessory Development Kit to create amazing gadgets with Arduino.

Whether you're new to Arduino and Android development, or you've tinkered a bit with either one, this is the book for you. Android has always been a natural fit with Arduino projects, but now that Google has released the Android Open Accessory Development Kit (the Android ADK), combining Android with Arduino to create custom gadgets has become even easier.

Beginning Android ADK with Arduino shows how the ADK works and how it can be used with a variety of Arduino boards to create a variety of fun projects that showcase the abilities of the ADK.

Mario Bohmer will walk you through several projects, including making sounds, driving motors, and creating alarm systems, all while explaining how to use the ADK and how standard Arduino boards may differ from Google-branded Arduinos. You aren't tied to specific hardware with this book; use what you have, and this book will show you how.

What you’ll learn
• How different boards work with the ADK.
• How to create your first sketch and project.
• How to work with light and sound.
• How to work with servos and DC motors.
• How to work with photoresistors and thermistors to sense the environment.
• How to make your own capacitive touch game show buzzer.
• How to create your own camera-enabled alarm system.
 

Who this book is for
This book is for beginning Arduino and Android enthusiasts, or Arduino developers who want to try out the new Android ADK.


Introduction Android ADK

In May 2011, Google held its annual developer conference, the Google IO, to present its newest technologies to approximately 5,000 attendees. In addition to improvements in its already well-known technologies such as the Google APIs or the core search technology, Google placed the focus on two major themes: Chrome and Android. As always, the newest advances in the Android Platform were presented and discussed, but what Google announced a bit later in the Android keynote was a bit of a surprise: Google’s first standard for Android devices to communicate with external hardware. The Android Open Accessory Standard and the Accessory Development Kit (ADK) will be the key for communicating with hardware and building external accessories for Android devices. To encourage development, Google handed out ADK hardware packages to interested attendees and showed some examples of ADK projects, such as a treadmill which transmitted data to a connected Android device and a huge tilt labyrinth, which could be controlled with an Android device. Shortly after the event, the first DIY projects surfaced which already showed the great potential of the ADK.
Since I couldn’t attend the event, I had no chance to get my hands on one of those kits; at the time, there was only one distributor for the Google ADK boards and this distributor wasn’t prepared for such a big demand. That didn’t stop me from building an alternative myself and from experiencing the joy of this new field in Android development. Over time, many more distributors have produced derivatives of the original Google ADK boards, which are, for the most part, cheaper and only provide the basics to get you started hacking your project together.
You probably just want to dive right in, but first you should learn about the specifics of the ADK and set up your development environment. You wouldn’t build a house before you knew how to do it or without having the proper tools, would you?
