Brillo software from Google for Internet of Things

Google is working on technology that could run on low-powered devices, called Brillo.

Brillo is being developed by a team at Google that’s related to the Android team. It is designed to run on devices with as little as 32MB, or or 64MB of RAM, less then stock Android which requires at least 512MB of RAM, according to the Information site.

Google has quite a few experts in house, because it acquired the companies like Dropcam (connected camera), Nest (smart thermostat), and last but not least Revolv, the maker of a smart home automation solution.

Hopefully Google can standardize Internet of Things, because at the moment a variety of companies are working on Internet of Things software, but there’s not an industry standard yet.

Google is expected to launch the code for the new operating system next week at Google I/O.
