Sony releases open source DASH sensor framework

Sony today announced that they are releasing their Dynamic Android Sensor HAL (DASH) sensor framework as an open source GitHub project.  Essentially this means that custom ROM developers and other mobile players can contribute to the project and improve things for all involved.

According to Sony, the CyanogenMod team has already been helping the cause, adding to the framework.

…used to enable and disable multiple sets of sensors for each device, including the accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, gyroscope, and pressure sensor. We plan to keep adding more sensor code as we release new phones…

If you or your development team is interesting in making code input for future Xperia models, you’re advised to head to Sony’s blog post for additional details.
