Client: Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI)
Country: South Korea
The task of ETRI was to implement the possibility to switch between 2 instances of Android OS running independently on the same device. Before this project, the client had never outsourced development or research. This project became the first pilot project of Apriorit for ETRI and it was really challenging.
Our team made completely working solution in 6 person-months. The solution drew interest of the big market players just after release. At the moment, ETRI approaches such top hardware manufacturers as Samsung, LG, etc. to commercialize it.See the ETRI video of Android OS switching
