Learn to build human-interactive Android apps, starting withdevice sensors This book shows Android developers how to exploit the rich setof device sensors—locational, physical (temperature,pressure, light, acceleration, etc.), cameras, microphones, andspeech recognition—in order to build fully human-interactiveAndroid applications. Whether providing hands-free directions orchecking your blood pressure, Professional Android SensorProgramming shows how to turn possibility into reality. The authors provide techniques that bridge the gap betweenaccessing sensors and putting them to meaningful use in real-worldsituations. They not only show you how to use the sensor relatedAPIs effectively, they also describe how to use supporting AndroidOS components to build complete systems. Along the way, theyprovide solutions to problems that commonly occur when usingAndroid's sensors, with tested, real-world examples. Ultimately,this invaluable resource provides in-depth, runnable code examplesthat you can then adapt for your own applications. Shows experienced Android developers how to exploit the richset of Android smartphone sensors to build human-interactiveAndroid apps Explores Android locational and physical sensors (includingtemperature, pressure, light, acceleration, etc.), as well ascameras, microphones, and speech recognition Helps programmers use the Android sensor APIs, use Android OScomponents to build complete systems, and solve commonproblems Includes detailed, functional code that you can adapt and usefor your own applications Shows you how to successfully implement real-world solutionsusing each class of sensors for determining location, interpretingphysical sensors, handling images and audio, and recognizing andacting on speech Learn how to write programs for this fascinating aspect ofmobile app development with Professional Android SensorProgramming.
