Sensors Plus

Flutter Community: sensors_plus

sensors_plus pub points pub package


A Flutter plugin to access the accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer sensors.

Platform Support



To use this plugin, add sensors_plus as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

This will expose such classes of sensor events through a set of streams:

  • AccelerometerEvent describes the velocity of the device, including the effects of gravity. Put simply, you can use accelerometer readings to tell if the device is moving in a particular direction.
  • UserAccelerometerEvent also describes the velocity of the device, but don't include gravity. They can also be thought of as just the user's affect on the device.
  • GyroscopeEvent describes the rotation of the device.
  • MagnetometerEvent describes the ambient magnetic field surrounding the device. A compass is an example usage of this data.

These events are exposed through a BroadcastStream: accelerometerEvents, userAccelerometerEvents, gyroscopeEvents, and magnetometerEvents, respectively.


import 'package:sensors_plus/sensors_plus.dart';

accelerometerEvents.listen((AccelerometerEvent event) {
// [AccelerometerEvent (x: 0.0, y: 9.8, z: 0.0)]

userAccelerometerEvents.listen((UserAccelerometerEvent event) {
// [UserAccelerometerEvent (x: 0.0, y: 0.0, z: 0.0)]

gyroscopeEvents.listen((GyroscopeEvent event) {
// [GyroscopeEvent (x: 0.0, y: 0.0, z: 0.0)]

magnetometerEvents.listen((MagnetometerEvent event) {
// [MagnetometerEvent (x: -23.6, y: 6.2, z: -34.9)]

Also see the example subdirectory for an example application that uses the sensor data.
