Sony opens up the Dynamic Android Sensor HAL

said by »developer.sonymobile.com/wp/2012···-source/ :

We are now releasing a sensor framework, referred to as DASH (Dynamic Android Sensor HAL), as an open source GitHub project. This actually means that we are the first manufacturer to release such a sensor framework. By making this open source, we hope that custom ROM developers will gain a lot from using it, and we also hope to see the community of developers help us improve the framework by contributing back (which we’ve already seen from CyanogenMod team). In this article, Oskar Anderö, a Sony Mobile software engineer, explains how DASH works, and how developers can contribute.

It is good to see companies as big as Sony open-source their code both through market pressure and a recognition of the strategic opportunity allowing outside contributors in has.
