    intel realsense r200 android sdk

    HimanshuPradhan

      Hi,

      I have a Intel Real Sense R200 Camera,What is process to create a android app using Intel Real Sense?

       

      Should i go ahead with java and creating a android app?

       

      Can i go ahead with using c,c++ sdk and creating a NDK application.But in this i guess i need  c,c++ SDK for Arm Architecture[Mobile device]?

       

      Is there any android SDK so that i can directly go ahead?

       

       

      Regards,

      Himanshu

          There was briefly an Android-based development system called the Smartphone Development Kit, but it got cancelled last summer as Intel moved its RealSense focus away from mobile and towards the 'desktop' SR-300 cam and robotics control.  Intel also decided to stop its line of Atom mobile processors and focus the SDK on the SR-300 cam from SDK R3 onwards (R200 users have to use the older version R2 SDK now).

           

          So sadly, your options for making a RealSense Android app may be practically non-existent, especially without an Android phone with a RealSense camera to run such an application on.

           

          Edit: I should add that R200 support is likely to continue in the open-source Librealsense SDK.  That does not have a direct Android development option either though as far as I know.

            Hi Marti, I have an android developer toolkit, do you know if there is any way to root it or it is useless right now?

              Do you mean the RealSense Smartphone Developer Kit?  I always wondered if some preview versions of that made it out into the wild before it got canceled before it went on public sale.

               

              The Smartphone Developer Kit used a ZR300 camera (the one that has just been released as a standalone USB developer kit for PC).  It's difficult to say how one would root the kit, since there isn't documentation for the kit as far as I know.  I believe that it was going to run on Android OS and have its own separate RealSense SDK for Android.  So I imagine that one would root it in the same way that they would an ordinary Android smartphone, as it essentially seemed to be a standard Android smartphone, but with a ZR300 camera in it instead of an ordinary phone camera.

               

              Edit: the Smartphone Developer Kit was meant to be compatible with Google Project Tango, so you may get more insights on the kit's workings by checking out the Tango documentation.

                Yes, I have the Smartphone, it's a pretty decent device... I'll try to root it with the usual ways and see if I can update some things to make it compatible with the last tango core.
