Sensors on the Web: APIs Under Wide Review

August 30th, 2016

The Device and Sensors Working Group has published a Working Draft of the Generic Sensor API, a framework to bring support for any kind of sensors to the Open Web Platform. An updated Working Draft of the Ambient Light API illustrates a concrete sensor API based on this framework.

The Working Group has determined that these APIs are now advanced enough that they would benefit from getting wide review from the broader community and welcome feedback from implementors and developers on both these documents.
