What are sensors and how are they
used in games?


A sensor
is a

converter

that measures a

physical
quantity

and converts it into a signal which can be
read by an observer or by
an
instrumen



A game
might track readings from a device's gravity
sensor to infer complex user gestures and motions,
such as tilt, shake, rotation, or swing.



S
ensors create a connection between the controller
and the
wii
. The player sends commands through the
controller. They are sent as signals and the sensors of
the
wii

, for example, inputs the signal and does what
it is told to do.

Example Of Game Sensors:

Tilt sensors

Tilt sensor used in a joystick


A

tilt sensor

can measure
the

tilting

in often two axes of a
reference plane in two
axes.
Typical applications can be
found in the industry and in
game controllers
. They are used
for:

i.
Indicating pitch and roll of
vehicles, sail boats, and
aircraft.

ii.
Monitoring the boom angle of
cranes and material handlers.

iii.
Measuring the "look angle" of
a satellite antenna towards a
satellite

and etc.


Where Are Game Sensors Used?

Kinect

sensor

Example


Kinect

is a

motion sensing

input
device

by

Microsoft

for the

Xbox
360

video game console

and
Windows

PCs
.
The device features an
"RGB

camera, depth sensor
and

multi
-
array microphone

running
proprietary software
",

which provide
full
-
body 3D

motion capture,

facial
recognition

and

voice
recognition

capabilities
.


It was made to interpret
specific
gestures,
making completely hands
-
free control of electronic
devices.


T
he
software technology enables
advanced

gesture recognition, facial
recognition and voice recognition
.



Advantages:


Helps to control
things properly.


Functions are easily
and quickly done.


They can easily detect
if there’s any problem
with the game.


Wireless sensor
network are easier to
control and avoid a
lot of wiring.



Disadvantages:


Often devices with
good game sensors,
like
playstations

or
wii
, are expensive.
