Installing OSH on Android (v.1.3.2)

The OpenSensorHub (OSH) App (v 1.3.2) can be deployed on Android devices and can stream real-time observations from a phone or tablet to a remote OSH hub on the web. These observations can come from sensors on-board the Android device itself, for example:

  • video camera
  • GPS or network location
  • gyroscope, accelerometer
  • magnetometer
  • geospatial orientation

or from other sensors connected through USB or Bluetooth, such as:

  • FLIR Thermal Camera (USB)
  • TruPulse 360 Laser Range Finder (Bluetooth)
  • Health monitoring bands (Bluetooth)

This blog provides information on how to install and configure OSH (v.1.3.2) on the Android devise.

Current sensor and actuator support

OpenSensorHub support for new sensors and actuators is continuously being added  by the OSH Team and other contributors. In addition to providing support for specific sensors and actuators, we are also building helper capabilities to make it easier to bring in new sensor and actuator drivers (e.g. an Arduino library, support for various communication protocols, helper classes for certain sensor types such as video cameras and weather sensors).


Welcome to the blog for OpenSensorHub – an open source, open standards software project building a powerful platform for the easy deployment of sensors, actuators, and processes from the Internet of Things (IoT) in to a highly interoperable SensorWeb.  OpenSensorHub harnesses the power of the Open Geospatial Consortium Sensor Web Enablement (OGC SWE) architecture in an open source platform that you can use to build a location-enabled, geographically-aware Web of Things.  Join the OpenSensorHub community as an explorer, an adopter, or a core contributor.
