At its Google I/O developer conference this week Google has unveiled a new platform called Google Brillo that has been designed to help create projects and systems for the Internet of Things.
The new Brillo platform extends the Android operating system to connected devices, so they are easy to set up and work seamlessly with each other and mobile devices, explains Google.
Brillo is also compatible with Nest and Nest ecosystem devices that will also use Weave that will drive the exchange of data and quality through a Google certification program that device makers will need to adhere to. Google explains more :
“uild devices quickly and securely, without having to worry about software updates. For other operating systems, just add a compatibility library to connect with Brillo devices over Weave.
Extend the reach of your apps to the physical world. Build one app to control multiple devices in the home and work environments, leveraging Google services such as voice actions.
Since Brillo is based on the lower levels of Android, you can choose from a wide range of hardware platforms and silicon vendors. Focus on building your hardware and applications—everything else you need is already built-in. Metrics, crash reporting and update services are available through your web console.”
