Environs enables real-time streaming of sensor data from mobile (or desktop) devices to other connected devices employing the low latency infrastructure of Environs. In order to show how to do this, we have added the project SensorData to the examples applications.
As of release 0.8.7, the examples demonstrate how to enable the different kind of supported sensor data (accelerometer, magnetic field, gyroscope, and calculated orientation) and also how to get notified through an observer as well as visualizing the data similar to an oscilloscope.
Currently, there are examples for the Android and OSX platform as shown in the images below. Implementation of the examples for iOS and Windows will follow soon.
