SensorSimulator lets you simulate sensor events from 
accelerometer, compass, orientation, temperature, light, proximity,
pressure, linear acceleration, gravity, gyroscope and rotation vector

It transmits the simulated sensor data to an Android emulator.
Also, it can record sensor data from an real Android device.



1) Launch bin/sensorsimulator.jar

2) Install bin/SensorSimulatorSettings.apk on your Android

3) Connect from your Android emulator to the SensorSimulator
   by entering the IP address that is shown in the
   SensorSimulator (if there are several possibilities,
   try which works)

4) These IP settings are stored on your device.

5) Build one of the sample applications, for example
   samples/SensorDemo in Eclipse. Further instructions can be
   found in the source code.

6) To include the sensor simulator in your existing application
   include the lib/sensorsimulator-lib.jar and follow the
   instructions that can be found in the samples source codes.

7) To record from the real device you need internet connection on the
   Android device and on the pc/laptop on which the simulator is
   running. The ip address of the simulator must be reachable from
   your Android device (a local wireless network will do the trick).


Directory structure:

- bin (*): contains the executables SensorSimulator.jar,
           SensorSimulatorSettings.apk and SensorRecordFromDevice.apk
- lib (*): contains the library sensorsimulator-lib.jar
- release: contains the build script to assemble the release
- samples: contains examples how to include the sensor simulator
           in your Android applications.
- SensorSimulator: contains the source code for the
            sensor simulator.
- SensorSimulatorSettings: contains the source code for
            sensor simulator settings.
- SensorRecordFromDevice: contains the source code for
            recording sensors from device.

(*) The directories "bin" and "lib" are only available in the
    downloadable release zip file.
