RTOS Based Home Automation System Using Android
With the openness, flexibility and features that Android offers, it has been widely adopted in applications beyond just SmartPhones. This paper presents the design and implementation of a low cost yet compact and secure Android smart phone based home automation system. This design is based on the popular open sourced Arduino prototyping board where the sensors and electrical appliances are connected to the input/output ports of the board. In order to enhance the system responsiveness and to make it more dynamic, the authors have integrated a popular and open source RTOS, the scmRTOS, which has a very small footprint on the microcontroller.
