Enabling better device interaction with accelerometers

An accelerometer device is normally underestimated by designers and software architects in the mobile industry. It's usually considered as a simple device mainly responisble for detecting the "position of the device in the space". The most common use case is orientation detection. However modern accelerometers can offer much more, things like gesture recognition and improved games experience. This talk will describe the use cases on how to implement the drivers and how to take advantage of the new features offered by some modern sensors. It will also describe what to take into account to simplify the software stack and reduce power consumption."
