The solution for this problem is the Android Device Kit from ACD Elektronik. The Android Device Kit is a modular device platform based on the Android™ Industrial+ operating system optimized by ACD Elektronik. As the name implies, thisAndroid™ offshoot has been specially optimized for industrial use and, in addition to greatly improved security, offers other important attributes such as long-term availability, stability and future-proofing. In addition, the entire source code is located at ACD Elektronik in Germany and there is no data leakage to third parties.
Furthermore, the Android Device Kit contains a broad “construction kit” of combinable hardware components such as displays of different sizes, communication modules, different sensors, interfaces, etc. The Android Device Kit can also be used in combination with other devices. In a joint development project, the requirements for the new measuring, testing or analysis device are defined and adjustments are made to the hardware and software so that in the end the optimum solution can be delivered to the customer. Due to the possibility of also integrating customer-specific components or even developing components from scratch, the possibilities with the Android Device Kit are almost unlimited.
