The Sensor module offers direct access to a device's physical sensors. It has been tested with the following sensors:
Instead of passing on raised events, event filtering is also supported. Two examples of using an event filter are also provided by the Sensor module, namely the class OrientationEventFilter and RotEventFilter. Both filters can be used to raise events when the orientation changes in the device (For example, when it is turned to the right). The support is device dependent. For example, Nokia 5500 supports OrientationEventFilter and Nokia N95 supports RotEventFilter.
