The LinearAccelerationSensor() constructor creates a new LinearAccelerationSensor object which provides on each reading the acceleration applied to the device along all three axes, but without the contribution of gravity.

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.


new LinearAccelerationSensor()
new LinearAccelerationSensor(options)


options Optional

Options are as follows:


The desired number of times per second a sample should be taken, meaning the number of times per second that the reading event 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.


Either 'device' or 'screen'. The default is 'device'.
