Accelerometer()

Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The Accelerometer() constructor creates a new Accelerometer object which returns the acceleration of the device along all three axes at the time it is read.

If a feature policy blocks use of a feature it is because your code is inconsistent with the policies set on your server. This is not something that would ever be shown to a user. The Feature-Policy HTTP header article contains implementation instructions.

Syntax

var accelerometer = new Accelerometer([options])

Parameters

options Optional

Options are as follows:

  • frequency: The desired number of times per second a sample should be taken, meaning the number of times per second that sensor.onreading will be called. A whole number or decimal may be used, the latter for frequencies less than a second. The actual reading frequency depends device hardware and consequently may be less than requested.
  • referenceFrame: Either 'device' or 'screen'. The default is 'device'.
