A sensor is a device that detects or senses various signals or stimuli,
such as acceleration, distance, orientation, and magnetic field
strength, and transmits the resulting measurement. If you want to create
applications that offer sensor features to the user, Tizen provides
various options for you.
In a smart device application UI, sensors are useful in monitoring user
gestures and motions.
When creating a sensor application, you can implement the following
The accelerator sensor is used to measure changes in force resulting
from fall, tilt, positioning, shock, and vibration. Smart devices

The proximity sensor measures the distance of an object from the
