Programming iPhone Sensors
Location enabled sensors and Augmented Reality
About the Class
The class is now available for US$99.99 from the O'Reilly Media website. Included in the price is the full four and half hours of video, a copy of the slides I used on the day with added commentary, fully working Xcode projects allowing you to build and follow along with all the code we built during the class, and two preview chapters from "Programming iPhone Sensors."
This class guides you through developing applications for the iPhone and iPad platforms that make use of the onboard sensors: the three-axis accelerometer, the magnetometer (digital compass), the gyroscope, the camera and the global positioning system. You’ll learn how to make use of these onboard sensors and combine them to build augmented reality applications. This will give you the background to building your own applications independently using the hottest location-aware technology yet for any mobile platforms.
This class assumes previous experience with the Objective-C language. If you are a programmer who has had some experience with the iPhone before, and wants to push your knowledge further, or you are an experienced Mac programmers, already familiar with Objective-C as a language, who wants an introduction to the hardware specific parts of iPhone programming, this class is for you.
