API review

Proposer: Chad Rockey

Present at review:


There has been a recent flood of low cost environmental sensors. These sensors can provide interesting data with little effort. In fact, these sensors are now appearing in smart phones, tablets, and in breakout boards at sparkfun.com. In order to ensure that this information can be recorded in a standardized way, I'm proposing several new additions to the sensor_msgs package.

I'm basing these messages off of the Android Sensors API. This API will have many developers and many more pieces of hardware. http://developer.android.com/reference/android/hardware/Sensor.html http://developer.android.com/reference/android/hardware/SensorEvent.html

These messages should, without exception, follow REP 103.
