An Android in TV and a refrigerator, a washing machine and the one in the electrical wires: Google intends to revolutionize the world of home automation system by focusing on the intelligence of Android, its applications, its pervasiveness, all through the project Android@Home.
The announcement was made at the event Google I/O during which a group of Mountain View wanted to illustrate the future of Android in its various branches of evolution. Android@Home is only one of the projects in play, probably the most ambitious though for years many groups have been investing in this sector, in fact, no one has been able to impose a solution that could actually bridge together across the board a smartphone and an electrical system, making possible all that the home automation promises to always complete the custom control and home electronics.
This is an innovation of enormous potential, but the results will not be visible for many months yet. The first partnerships were initiated and in fact just have to wait at least be able to see the end of the first solutions that build on the Android framework something concrete.
To date, however, it is possible to imagine and you can easily imagine an application to remotely manage every appliance, every light, and every engine component. You can think of a house made of sensors and interact with scenarios and configurable elements to facilitate intelligent life.
In anticipation of the first integrations, Google offers its first proprietary solution: the Project Tungsten used to interface a series of cases to an Android system from which kicks off streaming music, creating an easy and quick connection to listen of the songs stored on Music Beta.
Android@Home is a free and open framework with two basic ingredients of the Google operating system, two key ingredients in the recipe that Mountain View hopes to bring so pervasive in homes.
