Comment by huttarl:

+1 for updating the sensor simulator to the new Android platform and
SensorEventListener. (I just updated some other code for this change, so
maybe I could do the same for SensorSimulator and submit a patch.)

Question: The instructions above say "download the latest
openintents-binary-x.x.x.zip". I don't see any such thing on the
openintents download list. Does sensorsimulator-1.0.0-beta1.zip replace
that file?

Thanks,
Lars

Comment by peli0101:

Hi developers! I understand your desire for an 2.0 API compatible version
of SensorSimulator. Unfortunately, most of the OI developers are currently
busy fixing bugs in the other OI apps, and there is a long list of feature
requests as well: http://code.google.com/p/openintents/wiki/FeatureRequests

But that's not a big deal, because the SensorSimulator is open source :-)
This means, you can help to contribute!

It should not be too difficult for any of you to write a basic wrapper of
the new classes (that calls back the old classes behind the scenes). If
someone makes a basic start, we can refine and correct that.

If you are interested in contributing, let's discuss the details in our
developer group: http://groups.google.com/group/openintents

This would be the fastest way for you to get the 2.0 API implementation.

I have the INTERNET permissions in the Manifest file but it keeps saying it

Hi - as I understand it, it's possible to do what you want using
Android 1.5, but the existing Sensor Simulator does not work for
version 2 upwards. This is because the sensor API has been completely
redesigned and it's now quite difficult to simulate a Sensor object in
a way that would be convenient for app developers. I had a go at
adapting the code at one point, and there was at least one other
person trying the same thing. I didn't finish - I don't know whether
anyone else did.

Hello,i have a question regarding the sensor simulator...

Is it possible to simulate the movement of the android device using
sensorSimulator?? for example,if i select the "move" option in the sensor
simulator and move the device, the co-ordinates of the current position of
the device should be available to me .... Is this possible ??? if
possible,which option will give me the co-ordinate position(Accelerometer
or compass) ??

This looks like a great tool, but I'm having a hard time getting started.
The emulator won't connect to the SensorSimulator java app. I do not get
an 'Enable' button and when I click Connect, it responds but stays on and
the Disconnect button does not enable. Both apk files installed
with 'Success', the SensorSimulator seems fully functional.

I'm using Windows 7 x64, Android 2.1.1, sensorsimulator 1.1.1
I've tried...
Emulator with/without eclipse
With firewall turned off (bitdefender IS 2010)
With wireless and wired internet connection
198.162.1.x (local IP) and 127.0.0.1 (localhost)
Port 8010 and port 80 (no IIS running)
ping of IP works
netstat -a shows a result of "[::]:8010" as Listening
java app shows 'Listening on port 8010...' in it's dialog

Any suggestions?

Some of the text in the prior post got garbled. The results of the netstat
was open square bracket colon colon close square bracket colon 8010. Not
sure why there was no IP address indicated in the brackets.

Ok. I figured it out. It had to do with the text input for the IP address.
When I used either my local keyboard, or the keyboard that pops-up on the
android screen, the dot (period) appears to be a double byte character. If
I use the keyboard on the right panel, it works correctly.

I can't get this to work.
Settings installs, Simulator connects. But demo fails.
It appears to be caused by Instrumentation onCreate. Does anyone see a
solution?

Hello, I have a problem using sensorSimulator. when I run the application
in emulator it shows alert message as "The application
SensorRealDevice(Process org.openintents.samples.SensorRealDevice) has
stopped unexpectedly. Please try again",

but in the logcat doesn't show any errors.

I use 2.3.3 version emulator to run this application.

Comment by rajeshmb...@gmail.com:

hi all,
i have written code to print the values returned by accelerometer.It
returns by default the valuse 0.0 , 9.88 , .88 for x,y and z axis
respectively.As i have not used any sensor simulator the value remains
same..but as discussed above i used sensor simulator( Replaced
Sensormanager by SensorManagerSimulator) but its not returning any value
mot even 0.0...in the mean time i noticed that when i keep cursor on any
function related to sensormsnagersimulator it shows the following message(
This element neither has attached source nor attached Javadoc and hence no
Javadoc could be found.)..but all other functions properties and
functionalities are displayed as soon as i move cursor over to that....so i
think the problem lies in that itself...i have even added external jar file
also...still the problem persists...please anybody help me in sorting out
this problem...

Hi everyone !
First of all, thank you for your tool which is great.
Actually, i've managed to modify an android app to use sensorsimulator, and
it's working fine when I simulate some sensors from the server. But I'd
like to be able to get the real sensor datas when the app is not connected
to the server. As it is written in the documentation, I removed the
connectSimulator() call in my code, but i don't get any data ! Should I do
anything else ?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Comment by Ed.Korsb...@gmail.com:

What a great idea this is. Too bad we have to modify the source code in
the application to either work with real sensors or this sensor simulator.
Is there any discussion with google android emulator development team to
incorporate this simulator into the standard SDK?

I followed the instructions to modify my code (that was fairly straight
forward) but am getting some runtime silent error upon calling
mSensorManager.connectSimulator();
when stepping through this in the debugger I see no exception throw but
simply that the application exits.


mSensorManager = SensorManagerSimulator.getSystemService(this,
SENSOR_SERVICE);
if (mSensorManager != null)
{
try
{
mSensorManager.connectSimulator();
}
catch (Exception e)
{
//this does not happen, maybe connectSimulator is not throwing an
exception
//but simply exiting the app?
