The penetration of Android OS rose greatly in the past years and it can be found running not only on mobile devices but on other embedded systems too. I decided therefore to choose embedded Android development as my graduation theme. I am convinced, that in the near future the popularity of Android will increase widely. The goal of my master thesis is to control a model car with an Android operating system running on a BeagleBone develpoment board.

At first I describe the applied literature of my thesis. At one hand I would like to focus on the Linux kernel, because it’s patched version is the base of the Android OS and at the other hand I would like to introduce the conception of the car’s engine controll to the reader. In the second part of my thesis I write about the steps of the design and development. I present some code snippets and I take a look under the hood, how did I realize the processing of the control signals at kernel layer and how did I attach the engine to the board. At last I evaluate the result of the project and I draft some more options for the further expansion.
