    Help to make an android app which interacts with Galileo

    AkarshHegde

      Hello everyone! I am making a project which includes a galileo board connected to motor and a moisture sensor. I wish to control the direction and speed of the motor using my android phone. Could anyone guide me as to how to get started with making this app.? Which libraries or api to use ?

      Thanks in advance!

          The simplest way would be to use a server/client system.

           

          Set up an Arduino program that uses has an instance of Ethernet.server. Assign it to whatever port you like. Then make an android app that loads GET requests to this servers IP on the PORT required.

          If you want very responsive/a lot of data created your own Ethernet.server class and use direct socket connectivity in the Android app using sockets
