Get body movement (e.g. turn around)

Postby moritzz » Sun Dec 27, 2009 7:38 pm

I'm working on an app that needs body movements as inputs. So basically I want to know if a person turns around completely (360°). If a the person does sthg happens inside the application. My problem
for now is: How to figure out if a person turned around? I don't see an approach with gps as the person is not moving enough. So I thought about the compass or acceleration sensor but I have no clue how to manage that. I'd really appreciate some ideas / hints / tipps!

Cheers

Okay, I came up with an idea now but I can't implement it. Basically I need to implement sthg like a real compass. I also found an application like that in the market: Compass. But I have no clue how they got that thing working properly. Does anyone have some experience with the "orientation" and "magnetic field" sensors?
