import android.hardware.SensorEventListener;
import android.hardware.SensorManager;
import android.os.Bundle;

public class AccelerometerTest extends Activity  implements SensorEventListener{
	 private SensorManager sensorManager;
	 double ax,ay,az;   // these are the acceleration in x,y and z axis

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
         sensorManager=(SensorManager) getSystemService(SENSOR_SERVICE);
         sensorManager.registerListener(this, sensorManager.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_ACCELEROMETER), SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_NORMAL);
