NAME
hpacel -- HP 3D DriveGuard accelerometer
SYNOPSIS
hpacel* at acpi?
DESCRIPTION
The hpacel device driver supports accelerometers that are commonly avail- able in Hewlett-Packard laptops. The supported chip is LIS3LV02DL from STMicroelectronics, although other chips from the same family, such as LIS3LV02DQ, may also work, provided that the vendor has implemented suit- able ACPI access methods. The hpacel driver reports the acceleration readings of the X-, Y-, and Z- axis via the envsys(4) API and the envstat(8) command.

HISTORY
The hpacel device driver appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

BUGS
The used accelerometer chip is capable of generating wake-up, direction detection, and free-fall interrupts. In the ideal situation these could be used to evoke possible emergency action. However, the hpacel driver only reports the readings from the accelerometer via sysmon_envsys(9). NetBSD 9.99 September 7, 2011 NetBSD 9.99
