The Windows 7 operating system provides built-in support for sensor devices. This includes support for location sensors, such as GPS devices. As part of this support, the Windows Sensor and Location platform provides a standard way for device manufacturers to expose sensor devices to software developers and consumers. At the same time, the platform gives developers a standardized API and device driver interface (DDI) to work with sensors and sensor data. This video discusses the new sensor and location APIs and how some software vendor solutions are taking advantage of these capabilities of Windows 7 and differentiating their application with sensor and location based services.
