Exploit the rich set of Android sensors to build fully awareapps
If you want to create truly amazing apps for Android, you mustknow how to take advantage of all of its capabilities. This bookhelps you achieve this by arming you with the knowledge and codeyou need to put Android's sensors to good use. From determining thesmartphone's location and interpreting physical sensors to handlingimages, audio, and recognizing speech, you'll learn how toeffectively apply the sensor- related APIs. With this information,you'll not only save time during the development process but you'llalso be able to build fully featured apps that integrate new levelsof interaction and automation.
Professional Android Sensor Programming:
