W3C Invites Implementations of the Sensor APIs
The Devices and Sensors Working Group invites implementations of four Candidate Recommendations:
- Generic Sensor API defines a framework for exposing sensor data to the Open Web Platform in a consistent way. It does so by defining a blueprint for writing specifications of concrete sensors along with an abstract Sensor interface that can be extended to accommodate different sensor types.
- Accelerometer defines
GravitySensorinterfaces for obtaining information about acceleration applied to the X, Y and Z axis of a device that hosts the sensor.
- Gyroscope defines a concrete sensor interface to monitor the rate of rotation around the device’s local three primary axes.
- Orientation Sensor defines a base orientation sensor interface and concrete sensor subclasses to monitor the device’s physical orientation in relation to a stationary three dimensional Cartesian coordinate system.
