The Sensor Object

The sensor object represents a particular sensor.

The Sensor API represents each sensor as a sensor object. You can work with a particular sensor object through its ISensor interface. This interface enables you to:

  • Retrieve metadata about the sensor, such as its ID, type, or friendly name.
  • Retrieve information about the specific data the sensor can provide.
  • Retrieve the data, synchronously.
  • Retrieve state information, such as whether the sensor is ready.
  • Specify which events your program will receive.
  • Specify the callback interface that the Sensor API can use to provide your program with event notifications.
