Sony opens up the Dynamic Android Sensor HAL (DASH)
[Development] Posted Aug 23, 2012 15:14 UTC (Thu) by jake
Sony has announced that the Dynamic Android Sensor Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) is now open for collaboration on GitHub. Since DASH was opened up in February, there have already been contributions from the CyanogenMod team, and this move is meant to foster more of that. "As a next step, we are now making DASH available as an open source project on GitHub. Here, custom ROM developers can find the source code files and “make” files for the sensors in Xperia™ smartphones, which is used to enable and disable multiple sets of sensors for each device, including the accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, gyroscope, and pressure sensor. We plan to keep adding more sensor code as we release new phones. Anyone in the Android open community is free to contribute their own sensor implementations and other improvements to the DASH code."
