3 First Public Working Drafts by The Device and Sensors Working Group

September 13th, 2016

The Device and Sensors Working Group has published 3 First Public Working Drafts of new sensor APIs to read data from accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers. These APIs, based on the group’s Generic Sensor API, give access to the low-level sensors needed to build higher-level APIs such as the Device Orientation API, but also open up new use cases so far unavailable to the Web Platform, e.g. via innovative use of the magnetometer.
