Android Things is Google’s Android-based OS for the IoT industry. Android Things provides rich developer APIs, managed software updates using Google’s over-the-air (OTA) infrastructure and certified hardware to effectively address the challenges IoT product developers face. By building with Android Things, developers can focus on developing unique, competitive devices that can be securely managed and updated when deployed.
NXP’s i.MX 8M applications processor will be certified for production to run Android Things 1.0 in the next few months and with long term support from both Google and NXP, is designed to be successful for IoT devices. NXP’s i.MX 7Dual will continue to be supported for developers to test and prototype ideas.
