Embedded Android

Dieser Kurs wird in englischer Sprache durchgeführt.
There are many courses that teach you how to write applications for Android. This is not one of them.
Instead, this courses focuses on the Android platform itself. It will teach you how to take the source code from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and build a custom Android image for a wide range of applications. Typical use-cases include test equipment, point of sale, and industrial control terminals.
Usually, Android is embedded into the system so that the end user sees only the user interface that controls the device.

  • During this four day course you will design your own product using the latest version of Android, Android 10.
    Beginning with a clean copy of AOSP, you will build system images and use them to boot the target device. You will create a new Android System Service, defining the interface using the Android Interface Definition Language, AIDL. You will learn about the Android security framework and SELinux, and add SELinux policy files for the changes you have made.
    Later, you will learn about the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the HIDL interface language, and binderized and passthrough transports. Finally, there is the allimportant topic of debugging and profiling the final system.
    Roughly half of the course is taken by hands-on lab sessions during which you will apply the theory to create an embedded Android device. At the moment it is only available on-line, using a virtual classroom. You will be building AOSP in the cloud and downloading images so they can be tested locally using the Android emulator.

    • Good knowledge C/C++ and Java
    • Familiarity with embedded Linux concepts (toolchain/bootloader/kernel/root filesystem)
    • Familiarity with Linux command-line tools such as make, grep, and find


    This course is ideal for system architects, engineers and project leaders who want to know how Android works and how to customize and extend the platform.
    • Electronic copies presentations and lab notes
    • Worked solutions to the problems
  • About the Trainer:
