More inputs than standard EUDs – all accessible via Android™ – provide more ways to operate your app. Standard gamepad buttons, four shoulder buttons, and a modifier key (fn) give you 16 discrete actions to build into your app. Two 2-axis joysticks give you intuitive directional controls, and the multi-touch screen gives you the capabilities endusers expect from apps. Regular apps can be easily modified to take full advantage of the buttons and joysticks for your users who wear gloves when operating – touch screen is not always optimal. Develop for the RDC and make your apps work in the field without adaption.
Eight high-precision integrated sensors let you design Android™ apps that incorporate motion, orientation, and environmental conditions. The RDC contains Motion Sensors, Environmental Sensors, and Position Sensors, where all of them, including the MPU5’s GPS receiver, integrate with the Android Sensor Framework. Leverage standard Android APIs to programmatically gain access to the sensor data.
