List of the sensors in a device

In December 2012 I wrote a post about an app that displays the sensor list in an android device, now after about a year and a half the API 19 have new sensor types and methods and I thought to update the app.


List of the sensors in an Android device

This is a simple app that displays all the sensors in the phone reporting the following characteristics:

  • Name: name of the sensor
  • Version: version of the sensor’s module
  • Vendor: vendor of this sensor
  • Type: type of this sensor
  • Max Range: maximum range of the sensor
  • Resolution: resolution of the sensor
  • Min Delay: minimum delay allowed between two events (equals to zero if this sensor only returns a value when the data it’s measuring changes)
  • Power: the power of the sensor
