Android based smart front panels

"Android front panels that are feature-rich, robust, and can seamlessly integrate with any devices."

The proprietary interface panels on a significant portion of electronic equipment have not evolved with time, and offer limited functionalities with an insipid user experience.

However, a few pioneering Device OEMs are focusing on designing the next generation front panel solutions that would provide immersive user experience and rich functionality at lower costs.
