Building an Open Source Smartwatch Using Zephyr - Jakob Krantz, u-blox

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this talk, Jakob will speak about his open source smartwatch, ZSWatch. The project includes all parts necessary to build a smartwatch: hardware, software, and mechanical parts. Additionally, Jakob will go through his experience of realizing this using Zephyr and talk about the advantages, the struggles, and the lessons learned. Software is a big part of a smartwatch and Jakob will talk about how Zephyr makes the interaction between human and hardware easier. But with only software there is no smartwatch. Aspects such as choosing the correct components are just as important, did Zephyr influence the choice of components? There will be a showcase of the internal design to help and encourage new contributors to the project. The project is relatively new and not very mature, meaning it will likely change and Jakob will share some thoughts and ideas about the future. Jakob will also talk about the background and history of the project, he may even answer the common question, why?
