usb-serial-for-android

Library for talking to Arduinos and other USB serial devices on Android, using USB Host mode and Android 3.1+

Homepage: http://code.google.com/p/usb-serial-for-android

About

This project provides an Android userspace driver for USB serial devices. You can use it to talk to your Arduino, or any other supported serial devices.

Usage

Download the sources. Inside you will find two Eclipse projects:

  • UsbSerialLibrary - the main library code, an "Android Library" project.
  • UsbSerialExamples - a demo Android application

In Eclipse, open "File", "Import", and then select "General, "Existing Projects into Workspace".

Navigate to the directory you just checked out and import both projects. Then run the demo application.
