谷歌副总裁称准备开发传感器同Android系统通信协议

    3月10日消息,据外媒报道,今日在SXSW大会上, 谷歌负责安卓、Chrome和Apps(应用程序)的高级副总裁——孙大信.桑达表示在两个星期内,谷歌将发布一个SDK开发包,这将使企业更容易创造在Android上运行的可穿戴设备。桑达没有做出任何回应谷歌本身是否参与开发这些设备。谷歌关注的重点是可穿戴设备中的传感器同Android操作系统进行对话的通信方式,该链接方式在底层操作系统中操作。


  “我们将对开发者关于我们如何看待这个市场做出详细说明 。”皮采说,“我看到了智能手机生态系统的演变和可穿戴设备两者之间并行的演变。其中智能手机变成了微小的计算机,可穿戴设备正变成一组组传感器 。”谷歌希望规范这些传感器数据发送到Android的标准 , 这标准反过来允许设备制造商能够选择不同Android系统而不是定制的操作系统。 “我们要开发一套通用协议,使他们能够协同工作, ”皮采, “通过一个网状层,数据层从而使他们连接到一起,”到目前为止,我们已经看到的大多是运行Android系统低于标准的smartwatches ,但皮采说, “当我们说我们说身打扮,我们正在考虑更广泛的应用 ”远远不止这些。谷歌希望将Android成为一个更广泛使用的嵌入式操作系统在许多不同的形式因素成为。

  当然,那么其他公司就可以直接在Android上运行穿戴式设备“,谷歌正在努力开发将所有这些设备连接在一起的层” ,按理说,谷歌本身可能使用同一层它自己的设备上。 LG电子生产的,谷歌自有品牌的SmartWatch的传言也出现了最近,虽然今天的新闻没有任何确认的是,它确实意味着,我们可能会看到运行Android系统的可穿戴设备。(元器件交易网 白玉涛译)

  以下为外文:

  Speaking today at the SXSW conference, Google's SVP of Android and Chrome Sundar Pichai said that in two weeks, Google will be releasing a developer SDK that will make it easier for companies to create wearable devices that run on Android. Pichai didn't drop any hints as to whether or not Google itself was working on any devices, but instead said that when it comes to wearables, he thinks about it "at a platform level." That means that Google is focusing on the low-level operating system hooks that are necessary for the sensors in a wearable device to talk to the Android operating system. Focusing on the "platform" is a clever way for Pichai to position Android as a real player in wearables without committing Google to building them itself.

  "WE'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT WEARABLES."

  "We'll lay out a vision for developers as to how we'll see this market working," Pichai said. He noted that he sees a parallel between the evolution of the smartphone ecosystem and the wearables ecosystem. Where smartphones became tiny computers, wearables are becoming nexuses of an array of sensors. Google wants to standardize how those sensors send their data to Android — and that standardization in turn should allow device manufacturers to opt for Android instead of a custom OS. "We want to develop a set of common protocols by which they can work together," Pichai said, "they need a mesh layer and they need a data layer by which they can all come together." So far, we've mostly seen a set of sub-par smartwatches running Android, but Pichai said that "when we say we say wearables, we are thinking much more broadly" than just that. Google is hoping that will Android could become a more broadly-used embedded OS in lots of different form factors.

  Of course, if Google is working to create "the layer which will connect all these devices together" so that other companies can make wearable devices that run on Android, it stands to reason that Google itself could use that same layer on its own device. Rumors of an LG-produced, Google-branded smartwatch have cropped up recently, and though today's news doesn't confirm any of that, it does mean that we're likely going to see more wearables running Android.
