GERMANTOWN, Md., Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Barr Group, a global leader in the safety and security of embedded systems, announced today that CTO Michael Barr and Principal Engineer Nathan Tennies will host an upcoming free embedded software webinar entitled UI Convenience at What Cost? The Embedded Android Dilemma.
The 60-minute webinar on March 3rd, 2015 at 1PM EST will provide an overview of the pros and cons of utilizing Android for embedded devices. Additionally, a few case studies will be examined, which illustrate the tradeoffs of embedded Android.
"One of the big challenges faced by embedded system designers is implementing a modern user interface," said Barr, a noted industry expert and former adjunct professor at the University of Maryland. "The open source Android operating system offers a rich user interface option, but is not always a fit for the rest of the system."
"Google's Android OS offers some real advantages over other Linux-based approaches for creating embedded devices with sophisticated human interfaces, but the size and complexity of the codebase can be daunting at first," said Tennies. "And as with any Linux solution, real-time software requirements and licensing can add additional challenges."
