I am an amateur and need some help.
I am working on a project, where character devices on an android phone must show up on the /dev directory of a linux PC. It can be shared via bluetooth /wi-fi or maybe USB.
For example character devices like camera and accelerometer of the phone must me shared seamlessly from a Linux PC so that the PC thinks that these devices are its own.
Here is the framework on how to implement it.
Server- Phone, Client- PC
This was taken from an IEEE paper called "Remote Virtual Peripheral Framework: Enabling Dynamically Composed Devices
". The paper implemented this on a nokia maemo device. I figure, it can be done on an android device too, once its rooted.(I have a Desire HD and going root it)
I don't know where to start. I have looked all over the net, but nothing of this sort is present.
I have learnt about creating device drivers in linux, compiling them and adding them as modules and making them show up in /dev.
Since “everything is a file” on linux, Can it be shared , using bluetooth library or something.
Please direct me where to go next. Thank you.
