Sensor Kinetics


How does your phone compare with your friend’s phone? Does it have a more advanced accelerometer or gyroscope? What other mysterious high-tech sensors does your tablet have hidden on board, and what do they do? Find out with Sensor Kinetics.

Sensor Kinetics is an advanced viewer and monitor for all of the standard sensors available in your Android device. The new built-in Multi-Sensor Recorder allows you to record up to six kinetic sensors simultaneously.

Written by one of the pioneers of the use of accelerometers and gyroscopes within the modern smartphone, it provides a comprehensive look at the total dynamics of the combined operations of all the sensors.

The app demonstrates the use of the accelerometer, gyroscope and the rotation sensor to control a tilt based view navigation like the RotoView technology by INNOVENTIONS. It also demonstrates the operation of the magnetic sensor, the linear acceleration sensor and the gravity sensor within special graphical displays.

Use Sensor Kinetics to monitor and understand the behavior of the sensors while you change the delay setting or activate/deactivate specific sensors. Each sensor is attached to a sophisticated chart viewer. The Multi-Sensor Recorder records multiple sensors simultaneously at a controlled data rate. If you need to save or share sensor charts, please purchase the companion Sensor Kinetics Pro.

For educational users, the app includes comprehensive help files which provide physics students with hands-on knowledge of how these sensors interact with smartphones and suggest numerous experiments you can perform on your phone or tablet.

Who Should Use Sensor Kinetics?

Developers, students, hobbyists, technicians, engineers... anyone who's curious about what lies "under the hood" of their mobile device!

Test your Android phone or tablet: Sensor Kinetics allows you to test all of the sensors on your device. For example, you can quickly determine if your Android device has a gyroscope sensor and how fast it's operating. The numerous chart viewers allow you to measure any sensor over time and gauge their accuracy and behavior.

Educational: Sensor Kinetics demonstrates the physics of gravity, acceleration, rotation, magnetism and more as these forces are measured by your phone or tablet. The app includes comprehensive help files with easy to understand information and experiments you can perform with the sensors.

App Developers: View in detail the behavior of the sensors used in your apps. Compare the performance of advanced sensors like gyroscope, linear acceleration sensor and the rotation sensor.

This app relates to gyroscope and accelerometer data logging, magnetometer, smart scroll, science, physics, tilt measure, pressure sensor, relative humidity sensor, light sensor, linear acceleration, temperature sensor, proximity sensor, gravity sensor, MEMS, kinetics

Recent changes:
The new Multi-Sensor Recorder feature provides simultaneous recording of any combination of the kinetic sensors. Tap the new Multi-Sensor Recorder button and select the sensors you want to record simultaneously. You can set the maximum data rate to control the size of the recording. After the recording, tap the charting button at the right of each sensor to view the recorded data.

Some functions no longer work On my 2012 nexus 7 with android 4.4.4: namely, the graphing functions for ALL the sensor readouts. I know it was working when downloaded, but that was a year or so ago.

Sped up my screen rotation My Note 3 lagged between orientations to the point I was shaking it. Now it is quick to change orientation. Just what I was looking for. Thank you!!
