簡介

Brillo 是一個極簡化的 Android 作業系統,拿掉了所有複雜的最上層介面,只留下作業系統底層的核心,讓 Brillo 可以裝進門鈴、監視攝影機、烤箱等裝置裡。

  • Brillo is an Android mobile operating system
  • Developed by a Google and nest Lab
  • Brillo Uses linux kernel
  • Supports android Apps


The idea is to create a standard way for each device in your home to explain to other devices what's capable of and what it's doing right now, so they can all work as a team.

Manufacturers can put Brillo on their devices to ease the process of getting a device online, manage the connectivity and many of the lower-level hardware functions that manufacturers don't want to deal with.

Google is likely to offer Brillo to hardware manufacturers for free.No doubt the company hopes to corner the smart home software market, by encouraging hardware makers to adopt Brillo as their OS of choice.

History

  • Announced by google on 28th May 2015

Communication

  • Brillo uses Bluetooth of low energy
  • Can support WiFi 802.11 b\g\n

Weave

  • Google also announced a communications standard called Weave which is a communications standard that defines devices and their functions
  • Weave is not a separate protocol, but rather a lightweight schema developers can use. Any device running Brillo and Weave will be able to interact with other Android devices. So devices will not just be linked to your phone, but also each other.
  • Weave exposes developer APIs in a cross-platform manner, so any connected device will speak the same language. Users will also see the same interface no matter what devices they are connecting.

Weave 讓裝置可以自己定義事件(例如,門鎖的「鎖門」、「解鎖」),並且讓其他裝置了解這些事件的存在,以及它們的意義。這讓裝置間可以自己互動,像是鎖門的同時,冷氣和烤箱會知道,並同時關掉自f己的電源之類的。雖然少了最上層的 UI,但 Android 大部份的 I/O 機能在 Brillo 上依然存在,所以仍然包括了可以理解語音的工具,讓「咖啡機,煮一杯咖啡」這樣的指令成為可能。
