Droidcon conference now in beautiful Croatia

Published

on

Zagreb is three days headquarters for Android fans at a Droidcon conference.

On Droidcon conference which is currently taking place in Zagreb, 44 teachers from 25 countries will share experience in the Android development.

Global Droidcon conference is very important for Croatia because Android developers from around the world will share their experience and knowledge with local developers, and also find out which trends are now popular in the world. It is also very interesting that more than 25% of the lecturers at the conference #droidcon are women, and in the hands of more than 500 participants are only Android phones (we have not seen any iPhone, but there were several Mac laptops). Last year, in Zagreb on the first Droidcon was around 400 Android developers.

Conference droidcon Zagreb opened Wojtek Kalicinski from Google. The main topic for the beginning was the latest version of Android N. In Q3 the Android N should be available to users, and is currently in phase Developer Preview. We expect multiwindow support in the new Android N, so that the user can on one screen have two windows open, with the possibility of adjusting the size of the window. Notifications will have a cleaner design, more material design. It will be possible to change the size of the screen or precisely change the screen resolution as on the monitors.

Much emphasis is on extending battery life through Dose way known since the Marshmallow version of Android, so you will be able to set that your smartphone does not have access to the network if the screen is off, for example.

Project Volta is directed towards the optimization of battery and will be able to control the background tasks, speed up or slow down the performance of top applications. The user will be able to put a specific application on a white list to the background that it could get Internet connection.

Danny Preussier from Groupon, which has 45 million downloads and 17 million active users talked about programming for Android including what techniques are not recommended, so that the visitors of the conference can see how they need to program apps which they address different markets and cultures.

Smart cars created a huge hype in the world, but only 52 applications are currently associated with Android Auto platform. Why? Christian Dziuba and Sina Grunau from c4c Engineering tried to explain why the “Developing apps for Android Auto” lecture.

Despite the simple development, it is only possible to connect apps for messaging and music. Due to driving safety, applications among other things must not have animations, visual ads amd they must work with voice commands, and each action must be completed in a maximum of 6 steps (for the US market, the Japanese even less – 4).

Unlike normal Android applications, Android Auto applications are sent to the verification (review) to Google, but the positive side is that pretty soon you can get feedback.

Motorola Software Supports Coronavirus Patient Recovery in Brazil

As coronavirus continues to impact communities around the world, many healthcare professionals seek innovative ways to care for those infected. When patients do recover enough from COVID-19 to be discharged from the hospital, they often face a long and challenging road to wellness. Dealing with lingering symptoms, uncertainty about future immunity, and wildly disparate living situations, recovering patients need ways to be monitored and supported. Custom-designed technology can help.

To assist in the recovery phase of coronavirus, Motorola teams quickly developed a software solution to monitor COVID-19 patients after they leave the Unicamp Hospital de Clínicas in Campinas, Brazil.

Upon discharge from the hospital, the patient receives a card with a QR Code and the registration number of the doctor responsible for the remote monitoring. When scanned, the code opens a customized browser in the patient’s smartphone—meaning no special app needs to be installed.

For 14 days, the patient will answer five simple questions about their state of health, recording symptoms and biometrics such as temperature, amount of coughing, tiredness, and shortness of breath during the previous 24 hours. After the patient completes the questionnaire, their information is logged into the hospital system. If any coronavirus symptoms are detected or if there are any concerns, the data is sent directly to the doctors, who will get in touch with the patient for further instructions.

“Since this is a new disease, many people feel insecure about the possibility of their condition getting worse,” said Plínio Trabasso, the epidemiologist responsible for the COVID-19 monitoring system at the Unicamp HC. “Therefore, having a doctor monitor their progress – even at a distance – and having an open channel to the hospital without the patient having to leave home increases their feeling and their degree of safety.”

The measure offers the patient greater convenience and helps promote social isolation to reduce the potential for contagion in the community.

Since the implementation of the solution, monitoring has become faster and more efficient. Before deploying the new software, a hospital attendant had to call each one of the patients every day to ask the basic questions and then send responses along to the doctor. Now, the doctor receives their patients’ questionnaires in real time and hospital attendants do not need to contact patients daily.

“As soon as the solution is fully implemented and working perfectly, it may be extended to other public hospitals and may even be used to monitor patients with different diseases,” said Edilson Silva, Software Development manager in Motorola’s “Dogfooding” team.

Edilson’s team is responsible for testing Motorola’s innovations amongst employee and volunteer populations—getting real-world feedback to inform their work. They are skilled at iterating and customizing new solutions to meet customer needs. The Dogfooding team’s approach to problem solving is readily applicable to the complex and ever-evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Motorola’s solution to monitoring recovering COVID-19 patients at home is just one example of how the company is responding to global needs during the coronavirus pandemic. While this donation is only in use in Brazil, the software will continue to be evaluated, improved, and hopefully implemented in other public hospitals to support the efforts of healthcare providers.

LG Electronics Inc. (LG) has prevailed in a decision by the the Munich (Ger.) District Court I ruling that Turkish-based home appliance companies Beko Deutschland GmbH and Grundig Intermedia GmbH had infringed LG’s patent. The lawsuits centered on the unlicensed implementation of LG’s freezer door-ice making technology.

LG will now seek an injunction on the sale of infringing refrigerators produced by Ar-çelik A.Ş. in Turkey and imported and sold by Beko and Grundig. LG’s freezer door-ice making technology was originally developed by LG for its Side-by-Side refrigerator models and is included in a portfolio of more than 400 patents specifically relating to door-ice making technology.

“LG Electronics is pleased with the court’s decision that Turkish companies should not be allowed to continue using technology developed by many LG engineers over thousands of hours without due compensation,” said Jeon Saeng-gyu, executive vice president of LG’s Intellectual Property Center. “On behalf of innovators and creators world over, LG will continue to challenge the practice of intellectual property theft by companies that believe they can benefit from the hard work of others.”
