When: Thu November 29, 2012 6:00 pm

Organization: Google Developer's Group - Boston

Location: Fidelity Center for Applied Technology - Adjacent to South Station, 245 Summer Street, Boston, MA


We have a great talk by two experts who literally wrote the book on developing Android apps that use a device's built-in sensors.

Making Sense of Android Sensors

Properly utilizing the sensing capabilities of Android devices is essential for creating an easy to use and amazing app. During this talk Adam Stroud and Greg Milette, Authors of Professional Android Sensor Programming, will show you the code and techniques you need to handle common sensor-related issues.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • Location Services: The various methods Android uses to provide location information as well and the strengths and weaknesses of each method.
  • Speech Recognition: How to create accurate speech commands
  • Physical Sensors: The different physical sensors that are available typical Android devices as well as how to process and make sense of the low-level data they provide.
  • Audio: How to collect and analyze audio for detection

At the end of the talk, you will have the code and understanding you need to go create amazing apps which use the awesome contextual information provided by real-time sensor data!
