Android Service


Master service for MyRobotLab running on Android.  It controls what sensors and resources are exposed and running (GPS, Accelerometer, Camera, Bluetooth, etc)

It is a singleton.  Which means only a single instance can be running on any Android device, however, multiple Android devices can pool Services & resources.

Here is my current setup:
