Google Shows Off Brillo, Its Internet of Things Platform
May 28, 2015, 12:23 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Google today announced its own internet-of-things platform called Brillo. Brillo is derived from Android and has minimal system requirements. It has broad silicon support and is easy to secure — both elements Google felt were important to offer. In coordination with Brillo, Google introduced Weave, a language for internet-of-things devices to use to communicate with one another. Google says Weave uses schemas, or language templates to communicate basic actions back and forth. Weave functions across platforms, and offers developers some APIs for incorporating into their own apps. Google claims the Brillo UI is easy for consumers to use when it comes to setting up their connected devices. Brillo will arrive in preview form during the third quarter of 2015 and Weave will be fully formed by the fourth quarter.
