Sensors that provide data are the key to delivering on the IOT promise. Now developers can take advantage of the UPM sensor libraries to greatly accelerate the development of their IOT projects and eliminate the need to write their own libraries. With support for nearly 200 commonly used sensors and actuators in the UPM library, Android Things developers can easily find a sensor driver, develop the application code, connect the hardware, and deploy the sensor to the platform. This saves developers tons of time because they no longer have to spend long hours developing, testing, and debugging their own drivers.
Here is a sample list of the various UPM-supported devices for Android Things:
The full list of UPM-supported sensors can be found at: UPM Modules.
We have provided some examples of code using UPM drivers for Android Things on the Intel IOT DevKit Android Things GitHub* to get you started. And as always, we invite you to contribute to the MRAAand UPM open source libraries.
Our mission at Intel is to help developers accelerate design and development of IOT projects to get their products to market faster. Work with us to take on your greatest challenges. Together we can fuel innovation and build new, rich experiences. Learn more about Google* Android Things on Intel® architecture.
