int sensor_get_fifo_count ( sensor_h  sensor,
int *  fifo_count 
)

Gets the size of the hardware FIFO of a sensor.

This function returns the size of the hardware FIFO that may be used by a specific sensor to support batching. However, regarding the underlying hardware configuration, the returned count may not mean the maximum number of sensor data that can be batched. See sensor_get_max_batch_count() for such purpose, finding out the possible maximum number of batched data.

int sensor_get_max_batch_count ( sensor_h  sensor,
int *  max_batch_count 
)

Gets the maximum batch count of a sensor.

This function returns the maximum number of sensor data events that can be possibly delivered when the batched data are flushed. Therefore, this count can be used to check whether the sensor supports batching or not.
If this returns a positive count, i.e., the sensor supports batching, the count also can be used to guess the possible longest batch latency of the sensor, with respect to the update interval to use.

Since :
2.3
Parameters:
[in]sensorA sensor handle

float *  max_range 
)

Gets the upper bound of the sensor readings of a sensor.

This function returns the upper bound of the range of possible sensor values, which are generated by the corresponding sensor denoted by a sensor handle.
If all sensor values are in the same unit, e.g., $\mbox{m/s}^2$ or degrees, the upper bound of all sensor values is returned. Otherwise, the upper bound of the representative sensor value, e.g., the step count of SENSOR_HUMAN_PEDOMETER, is returned.

Since :

This function returns the lower bound of the range of possible sensor values, which are generated by the corresponding sensor denoted by a sensor handle.
If all sensor values are in the same unit, e.g., $\mbox{m/s}^2$ or degrees, the lower bound of all sensor values is returned. Otherwise, the lower bound of the representative sensor value, e.g., the step count of SENSOR_HUMAN_PEDOMETER, is returned.

Checks whether a sensor corresponding to a given URI is supported in the current device.

To correctly check the availability of a sensor, a valid URI should be provided. The valid form of URIs is explained in Sensor URIs.
If a URI with the sensor's name is given, for example, http://tizen.org/sensor/general/light/front, the availability of the "front" light sensor is checked. Otherwise, if a URI without the name, http://tizen.org/sensor/general/light, is given, this function checks the availability of any light sensor in the device.
It is recommended to check the availability of the sensors corresponding to the URI before actually acquiring sensor_h.
