The internet of things(IoT), to simply put, is the interconnectivity of everyday objects via the internet with computer devices embedded in them. The “things” part in the Internet of Things may include cars, TVs, shoes or anything and everything that can be able to transfer information and be assigned an IP address. Android, on the other hand, is an operating system that surfaced at the end of 2007. As per today, Android is one of the most popular operating systems that is the most used and the most popular due to the perks it has. Android-powered devices, for instance, automobiles, televisions, refrigerators etc. in offices, as well as homes, can be interconnected via smartphones, again powered by Android.
Android is, without a doubt, the most used operating system. More than half the world’s population is using it and enabling businesses in providing Mobile Apps Development Service. The most obvious reason is Android is from its very inception. Tempted by this, hardware manufacturers opted to equip their devices with the Android operating system to make them affordable. The cherry on top, it’s open source unlike other operating system protected by copyrights and other laws. Consequently, developers with great minds actively participate in contributing towards this operating system to provide Android app development services in Saudi Arabia.
Android, being the most widely used operating system even more than the iOS, has been the forefront of Internet of Things. The battle of operating systems has now been shifted to providing the internet of things to the users and Android is taking the charge in it. The IoT requires a platform that enables different devices to interconnect and operate and Android does that so well.
First of all, not to mention, Android is free as well as open source. Being open source, it enables the developers to customize the source code and mold the operating system as per their requirements and put it to use accordingly. The operating system is Linux-based and thus providing the flexibility for developers.
Secondly, Android Apps Development Services are a way to deem an otherwise useless device useful. A gadget is nothing with the applications it has. A camera in the smartphone won’t run unless there is an app integrated to it. So, it’s the apps that make the internet of things possible.
Thirdly, Java is the foundation of IoT and Android does that in a way that’s hassle-free and makes more sense as opposed to the embedded Java that requires dedicated devices.
The sensors; that can collect and transfer information through the operating system. As the android, again, is an open source, it can be tweaked to get along the device well.
The device; that has a processor or device that IoT ecosystem, this has to be portable and be able to provide constant connectivity.
Data Transfer; a component that supports data transfer from the sensor. The two options include XMPP and MQTT. Both supported by Android. Linux, Windows, and Android can accommodate the libraries.
Program; that receives and stores data. A standard Linux server can do.
So, there’s no wonder that Android App Development Services are the driving force behind the Internet of Things.
