TEDxMMU 2011 Full-featured Embedded System Design with Smartphones

I am very honoured to be invited to present in TEDxMMU 2011, the independently organized TED event in Multimedia University. Presenting an interesting talk within 18 minutes is challenging and this is the only presentation that I ever did a rehearsal and I do fell good to complete it almost at the 18-minute mark. The details of the event are as follow:

Date:10 December 2011 (Saturday)
Time: 9.00am to 3.00pm
Venue: E-theater, Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Multimedia University, Cyberjaya

The synopsis of my talk:
"Smartphone has many features that can enhance the design of an embedded system such as Internet connection, voice recognition or camera captures. There are however a few problems that restrict such integration such as the high cost of a smartphone and limited direct data connection to a smartphone. With the introduction of Android Accessory, Android devices can be connected to a microcontroller via USB connection that provides identification and bulk transfer via input/output streams. Foreseeing more low cost Android devices and the ease of getting hardware components for developing Android Accessory, there will be an increase of integration of Android devices into an embedded system in various areas such as robotics, consumer products, medical products and educations."


The video of my presentation is supposed to be recorded and published later but it is not available due to technical problems. Some of the TEDxMMU 2011 videos are however available. However this is a great event for me.
