Real-Time Android

RTAndroid platform makes real-time Android possible. With its ability to serve real-time requests, RTAndroid enlarges the field of application of mobile Android devices to time-critical domains. They could be used for in-field monitoring in industrial plants or as an integrated automation platform. This project evaluates the applicability of a RTAndroid-based solution in scenarios typical for programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Continuous improvements in the portability, usability and computational power of modern tablet PCs allow the development of new environments for working with PLC-common programming languages. Given the fundamental real-time support, RTAndroid can be used as a platform for an all-in-one solution including development, simulation and execution of typical PLC programs, as well as the communication to external hardware.
