Qt Sensors QML Types

QML Module API

If the module is imported into a namespace, some additional methods become available.



  import QtSensors 5.0
  //  ...
      Component.onCompleted: {
          var types = QmlSensors.sensorTypes();
          console.log(types.join(", "));
      }

The documentation for the module API can be found in SensorGlobal.

QML Sensor Types

These types represent specific types of sensors.

Note that most properties come from the abstract Sensor element.

Accelerometer

Element reports on linear acceleration along the X, Y and Z axes

Altimeter

Element reports on altitude

Element reports on the ambient temperature

Compass

Element reports on heading using magnetic north as a reference

DistanceSensor

Element reports the distance in cm from an object to the device

Gyroscope

Element reports on rotational acceleration around the X, Y and Z axes

HolsterSensor

Element reports on whether a device is holstered

IRProximitySensor

Element reports on infra-red reflectance values

LightSensor

Element reports on light levels using LUX

Magnetometer
