DeviceMotionEvent.DeviceMotionEvent()

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The DeviceMotionEvent constructor creates a new DeviceMotionEvent.

Syntax

var deviceMotionEvent = new DeviceMotionEvent(type[, options])

Parameters

type

  • acceleration: An object giving the acceleration of the device on the three axis X, Y and Z. Acceleration is expressed in m/s2.
  • accelerationIncludingGravity: An object giving the acceleration of the device on the three axis X, Y and Z with the effect of gravity. Acceleration is expressed in m/s2.
  • rotationRate: An object giving the rate of change of the device's orientation on the three orientation axis alpha, beta and gamma. Rotation rate is express in degrees per seconds.
