Android based systems

We accelerate world class development of your systems based on Android.

Recognized as a leading system integrator for Android based systems, RT-RK is a pioneer in Android system engineering since our first deployments based on Android Froyo back in 2012 with Swisscom.

Our strong engineering background with living room entertainment devices is based on AndroidTV technology. Our hands-on experience helps customers bring world class devices to end users. The engagement with our customers starts from an early-stage requirement definition, and continues through development and integration, certification, and product lifecycle management.

We bring a decade of Android expertise to help OEMs scale and develop the next generation of In-Car Infotainment based on Android Automotive. By addressing various OEMs’ needs and taking the responsibility for the software quality while allowing OEMs to keep software ownership, we deliver Android Automotive in various environments:

  • Hypervisor (running Android Automotive in parallel with Safety Critical OS)
  • Container based
  • Cartridge based

We allow customers to build their own AOSP flavored and highly customized OS, exploring new dimensions of Android based experience. We accelerate deployments by keeping what is good in AOSP and developing new features and experience for the target platform.
