Abstract
NILS on Android – The Wonderful Journey Android is the fastest growing operating system for mobile phones. The development of applications for Android is increasing exponentially, about 2000 new applications per week for the first quarter 2010. [17] And the reason for this trend is particularly Google's openness to everything. Android is open source, and in principle, anyone can freely make their own applications that can be published and used by the entire world.

NILS on Android – The Wonderful Journey Android is the fastest growing operating system for mobile phones. The development of applications for Android is increasing exponentially, about 2000 new applications per week for the first quarter 2010.

Android is open source, and in principle, anyone can freely make their own applications that can be published and used by the entire world. So it was no coincidence that it was just Android that Saab wanted us to explore a little deeper to see if this could be something for Saab and their future products. In this thesis, we investigated if Android was as customizable as Saab wanted, and if we could modify the NDK in such a way that Saab was able to port one of their current products to Android. The result was that Android does not currently support C + + exceptions which meant that there was no opportunity to continue on that track. Instead we developed an application, NILS, which is part of a project called Crisis Training (CT). CT is a tool for civil training and is suitable for training disaster situations. (Less)
