Nowadays, smartphones, which have become part of people’s lives, are a tool that makes many tasks easier in our everyday life. According to the data gathering website ‘Statistics’, there will be about 41 million smartphone users in India by 2020. Keeping smartphones in such a way has become common for people.
Today, we are going to tell you about the sensors used in the smartphones, with the help of which many types of applications available in your smartphone work. Suppose, if you install the compass named app on your smartphone, then it starts telling you the right direction. Do you know how this is possible? This is only possible due to the sensor in your smartphone.
These are some important sensors that are used in almost all types of smartphones-
Proximity sensor (proximity detector sensor): When an object is near a smartphone, this sensor detects its presence. This sensor is primarily located near the selfie camera in the upper part of the smartphone. This sensor usually lets you take your smartphone to your ear when you call or call, then this sensor automatically turns off the display light of your smartphone.
Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensor (sensor used for rotation): This sensor mainly tells about the direction in which the smartphone is rotated. Whenever you are watching a video on your smartphone, you prefer to see it in landscape mode instead of Protrait mode so that the video can be seen on full screen. For this, as soon as you turn your smartphone into landscape mode, the orientation of the video running in the smartphone also becomes the landscape. Keep in mind that this sensor works only when your smartphone has auto-rotation enabled.
If you lock the rotation on your smartphone then this sensor does not work. It is called Accelerometer and Gyroscope Sensor because the rotation of the smartphone requires two censors in which the accelerometer in its linear acceleration (linear acceleration) while the gyroscope controls the rotation angle speed. Accelerometer sensor is also used for many health related applications.
Digital compass: It uses magnetometer sensor which works according to the magnetic field of the Earth. With the help of this sensor, the install digital compass in the smartphone gives information about the right direction.
Barometer: This sensor works primarily with the help of Inbuilt GPS chip in the smartphone. With it’s help, data can be collected by locking the location at a high speed at high altitude. This sensor is basically used in health app, with the help of which you get information about how high you are.
Biometric sensor: It is used today in nearly all types of mid-range and high-end smartphones. With the help of this sensor, the fingerprint sensor is able to protect the smartphone. This sensor scans the thumb or finger and saves the recorded impression data in the smartphone, and for the second time if the thumb or finger is placed on this sensor, then it can be recognize the the fingerprint impression by matching it with the saved data.
Ambient light sensor: This sensor helps to adjust the brightness of the smartphone’s display to the brightness of the room. This sensor helps to automatically brighten the display’s brightness less or more.
Virtual reality sensor: All the sensors used in the smartphone, together with the CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphical Processing Unit), help to collect accurate data. The Virtual Reality sensor originally works with a smartphone’s camera and reality-themed app. This sensor can also create an animated picture with the help of a camera app in the smartphone.
As it is the practice of creating a variety of animated face photographs in the youth today, it is possible only with the help of this sensor. This sensor also helps in playing a variety of mobile games. There are virtual characters in many types of mobile games that can be created with the help of this sensor and you can take advantage of mobile games.
GPS Sensor: GPS sensors are usually used on all smartphones. GPS means Global Positioning System. This sensor helps you to know the location of the device. These sensors can connect with many types of satellites and tell where you are at this time. This does not work when you are present in indoor or in the basement and there is a thick cloud because these layers create problems in connecting the sensor to the satellite. Also the GPS sensor works only with internet connectivity. That is, if the internet data is off in your smartphone then this sensor does not work. GPS sensor works on internet data, due to which the smartphone gives the warning of the excess use of the phone’s battery. The GPS sensor quickly discharges the battery of the smartphone, but with the help of this sensor, many types of locating apps work in your smartphone. If your smartphone is lost somewhere then with the help of a GPS Tracker App, it helps you to lock your smartphone and find where it is placed.
