Re: Why is 'Sensor' a Peripheral in the API Reference?
Inertia, probably, and maybe a lack of somewhere better to put them. Properly "sensors" are an abstract subsystem and the related peripherals would be things like "accelerometers", "gyroscopes", "thermometers", etc... But we don't really have a heading for "device type subsystem", and pulling these up a level would put "sensors" next to stuff like "power management" where it really doesn't belong.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There's also the problem that while we have a sensor framework abstraction, we, er, kinda lack a lot of actual sensor drivers to use it.
Personally I don't think this is awful, but some reorganization certainly couldn't hurt.
