While Android has shipped in more than a billion phones and has made its way into countless hmi systems, its uses have remained user-centric; that, despite some community attempts over the years to show that it can be used in headless systems.

But what exactly is Brillo? How close is it related to Android? What's Weave and what does it do? This talk will dive into the internals of Brillo and Weave. We'll look at a Brillo/Weave system in action and explain what makes it work and what it shares with its closely-related, robot cousin. Namely, we'll show how Brillo uses none of Android's Java parts, and how Weave is a set of network services running on Brillo.
