Android does not only meet the taste of end-users, but also provides a comfortable home for programmers that feels very different to traditional embedded Linux. Unfortunately, the Android stack and app model does not account for real-time requirements, although they are needed in an ever-growing number of scenarios. To combine the benefits of both realms, we have created a real-time capable Android solution (Àndroit). We present the resulting software architecture, and discuss how we augmentedthe Android stack with RT capabilites. We report on our experience with integrating the Android and preempt_rt kernel patches, highlight the benefits for engineers, end users, and in hardware consolidation, and share how the advantages of Android can be extended to scenarios not covered by the standard architecture. A practical demonstration of real-time Android rounds thingsoff.
