A method for logging and visualization of mobile device motion


The article presents the possibility to use mobile devices for recording and visualizing motion. Research focuses on Android devices. The study was written application for mobile devices that allows reading data from the magnetic sensor and acceleration sensor in three axes X, Y and Z. The tests were made on two devices with similar characteristics. Selected results are presented in the tables.
