Ken Gilmer

Angel Roman

Traditional embedded system applications are built on statically configured proprietary hardware and software platforms. This talk will illustrate how to build dynamic, highly customizable embedded systems using Linux, device drivers, JNI bindings, open source Java (PhoneME), OSGi, and Eclipse. This talk will present a full software stack of an embedded systems platform using only open source software. No proprietary or commercial tools, drivers, or applications are used. We will show examples of these applications running on BUG, a commercially available open-source consumer-electronics device. Those with a basic understanding of Linux, embedded systems, and OSGi would get the most out of this talk. More information on the BUG is available at http://buglabs.net/products.

Ken Gilmer writes software for himself even when he's writing software for others. String matching algorithms, Gentoo, OSGi, embedded systems, and Eclipse are presently keeping him occupied. Ken resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Angel Roman is the Chief Software Architect of MDE Systems and an expert on the Eclipse Development environment and its application frameworks. He has presented at various industry conferences on topics such as Software Defined Radios and MDE Technologies. He is currently involved with projects concerning Eclipse Development, Embedded Linux Systems and OSGi.
