This theses is conducted in cooperation with BSH Hausgeräte GmbH. The target is the investigation of the applicability of Android as an operating system for home appliances, specifically for ovens. In order to draw conclusions in regard of applicability, three major topics will be investigated. For a start, the performance of Android running on moderate target hardware will be analysed. The focus lies on graphics, since a high quality graphical user interface is most likely to be the crucial point in terms of performance. Providing a smooth and responsive graphical user interface is decisive for a satisfying user experience. Furthermore, originating from the mobile domain, Android requires an array of modifications prior to being embedded into an oven. The goal is to identify these potential aspects that need modification and give appropriate solutions, thus also providing an estimate of the required effort for the embedding process. Finally, potential inter-process communication mechanisms will be investigated with the objective to identify the most eligible method(s) for the communication between an Android application and the underlying oven hardware.
