Google Android Things

Android Things (codenamed Brillo) is an Android-based embedded operating system platform by Google, announced at Google I/O 2015. It is aimed to be used with low-power and memory constrained Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which are usually built from different MCU platforms. As an IoT OS it is designed to work as low as 32–64 MB of RAM. It will support Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi. Along with Brillo, Google also introduced the Weave protocol, which these devices can use to communicate with other compatible devices. Google provides OEM implementations of Android Things designed for the production of Google Assistant-powered smart speakers and displays running one of two Qualcomm "Home Hub" systems-on-chip. Products have been developed by JBL, Lenovo, and LG Electronics.
