accelerationIncludingGravity property returns the amount of acceleration recorded by the device, in meters per second squared (m/s2). Unlike
DeviceMotionEvent.acceleration which compensates for the influence of gravity, its value is the sum of the acceleration of the device as induced by the user and the acceleration caused by gravity.
This value is not typically as useful as
DeviceMotionEvent.acceleration, but may be the only value available on devices that aren't able of removing gravity from the acceleration data, such as on devices that don't have a gyroscope.
var acceleration = instanceOfDeviceMotionEvent.accelerationIncludingGravity;
accelerationIncludingGravity property is an object providing information about acceleration on three axis. Each axis is represented with its own property:
- Represents the acceleration upon the x axis which is the west to east axis
- Represents the acceleration upon the y axis which is the south to north axis
- Represents the acceleration upon the z axis which is the down to up axis
