Join Steven Lipton for an in-depth discussion in this video Altimeter, part of Advanced iOS App Development: Core Motion.
[Narrator]- As you just heard in later model devices,…the altimeter measures barometric pressure…in kilopascals through core motion.…You do not reach it in device motion…or even the motion manager,…but as a raw sensor.…Let's add some code to our fencing project to…detect altitude changes.…Make a new function in the fencing demo…called 'myAltimeter'.…Close the console.…Just above 'myDeviceMotion', make a new function…called 'myAltimeter'.…
Check for the availability of the altimeter.…You do that with the 'isRelativeAltitudeAvailable'…class function.…If it's not available, print to the console…that we don't have one in the else statement.…Altimeters only have push updates.…We'll make an altimeter object and then start updates.…
First, head up to the top of the code…and make a property for the class for the altimeter.…We'll do a 'let altimeter = CMAltimeter'.…Back in the 'myAltimeter' function,…start the updates: 'altimeter.startRelativeAltitudeUpdates',…and we'll use the one with the handler…and the operation queue.…
