OLED Screen sample demo

(Watch the demo on YouTube)


  • Android Things compatible board
  • Android Studio 2.2+
  • 1 SSD1306 OLED screen
  • jumper wires
  • 1 breadboard


Schematics for Raspberry Pi 3

Build and install

On Android Studio, click on the "Run" button.

If you prefer to run on the command line, from this repository's root directory, type

./gradlew ssd1306:installDebug
adb shell am start com.example.androidthings.driversamples/.OledScreenActivity

If you have everything set up correctly, you will see a small bitmap slowly moving in the screen. If you want to change the pattern displayed, change the variable mMode in OledScreenActivity and deploy again. The sample has three modes: DOTS, BITMAP (default) and CROSSHAIRS.
