Sensor device driver reference for Windows 8.1

In Windows 8.1, COM interfaces and other constructs for Windows sensor user-mode drivers are built on the Windows Driver Frameworks (WDF) - User-Mode Driver Framework (UMDF) platform. The sensor interface that is used by drivers is ISensorClassExtension. The sensor interface that is implemented by drivers is the ISensorDriver. These APIs are in the following headers:

  • SensorsClassExtension.h
  • Sensors.h

Sensor device driver reference for Windows 10

Sensors class extension v2 is designed for use by driver developers who work on sensor drivers for Windows 10 and newer operating systems. The associated APIs are in the following header files:

  • Sensorsdef.h
  • SensorCx.h
