Abstract

The Android platform provides built-in sensors for measuring location, motion, orientation, and the characteristics of the surrounding environment. These sensors enable the development of location and environment-aware applications on the Android platform. This chapter explores the various sensors and location devices supported by the Android platform and the Android framework application programming interfaces (APIs) provided in order to interact with these sensors and location devices.
