Example text

Since you have two hardware devices with which you want to communicate during the programming phase (the ADK board and the Android device), you will have to provide drivers for those devices also. Installing the Hardware Drivers on Windows Although the ADK boards are based on the ATmega 2560 for which the drivers are already deployed with the Arduino IDE, Windows users should download an archive file that contains driver definitions for the ADK type boards. cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardADK. zip. inf file.

You will need it when you request the user’s permission to connect to a USB device. The intent filter you see here is used in conjunction with a broadcast receiver to make sure that the application only listens to certain broadcasts. The filter defines that it reacts on the ACTION_USB_PERMISSION action you defined as a constant in the beginning and on the ACTION_USB_ACCESSORY_DETACHED action, for when the ADK accessory is disconnected. The registerReceiver method registers the broadcast receiver with the described intent filter at the system.

If those values match with the values transmitted by the board, the filter will trigger the Activity to start. Connect your Android device to your PC and upload the changed application. Now connect your device to the ADK board. You may see that a dialog pops up asking you if you want to always associate your application with the recognized intent. You can confirm that and, afterward, you will see that the application has been started. If you are experiencing that nothing happens after you connected your device, check if your filter matches the values you defined in the Arduino sketch.
