Lumia SensorCore SDK is a collection of APIs utilising data from different sensors (for example, accelerometer) and also location information. This information can be used to track user’s physical activities and motion. The sensors are able to run constantly in the background, collecting and preserving data for up to past ten days. Even though they are constantly active, the sensors run in a low power mode, consuming only a negligible amount of battery. Since the sensors may provide access to user’s private data, data privacy is a critical part of the design. User has always the option of disabling SensorCore SDK sensors and clearing any collected data.
The Lumia SensorCore SDK will be available initially for Lumia 1520, Lumia Icon, Lumia 930, Lumia 630 and 635, running on Windows Phone 8.1 with Cyan firmware.
The following features are included in Lumia SensorCore SDK beta:
