The GravitySensor constructor creates a new GravitySensor object which provides on each reading the gravity applied to the device along all three axes.


let gravitySensor = new GravitySensor([options])


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 on device hardware and consequently may be less than requested. The default frequency is the one defined by the underlying platform.
  • referenceFrame: The local coordinate system representing the reference frame. It can be either 'device' or 'screen'. The default is 'device'.
