hpacel -- HP 3D DriveGuard accelerometer
hpacel* at acpi?
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.

STMicroelectronics, LIS3LV02DL: 3-Axis - ±2g/±6g digital output low
voltage linear accelerometer. AN2381 Application Note, Revision 1,

The hpacel device driver appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

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).
