I’m looking for ways to use Android as HMI platform in the Industrial Automation. The only thing lacking by default are user controls (a.k.a. widgets). In my search for widgets, i stumbled upon a blog named “Mind the Robot” showing how to create a vintage thermometer for Android. Seeing the thermometer makes me believe that it should not be too hard creating a whole set of controls that can be used in HMI’s for the industrial automation. The thermometer can be modified to be a pressure or flow indicator and with a few minor tweaks, it can be turned into a level indicator also.
Hmmmm, the examples will also do nice in a Bentley as speedometer 😉
