How to use qt sensor in my arm device?

  • hi,guys! i am new to qt. english,compile,qt api everything is hard to me . my device has a 6-axis sensor(mpu6500),and i can get data from the sensor in kernel,but i don't how the qt sensor get the data from the kernel,and what kind of data type. now i can run sensor_explorer(a qt sensor examples) on my device, but it can't detect any sensor.what should i do?

    i noticed the note in /qt5sensors-5.6.1-1/src/plugins/sensors/linux/linuxsysaccelerometer.cpp
    #include "linuxsysaccelerometer.h"
    #include <QtCore/QDebug>
    #include <QtCore/QtGlobal>
    #include <QtCore/QFile>
    #include <QtCore/QDebug>
    #include <QtCore/QTimer>

    #include <QtCore/QStringList>

    #include <time.h>
    #include <errno.h>

    char const * const LinuxSysAccelerometer::id("linuxsys.accelerometer");

    // This plugin reads the accelerometer from a sys interface.

    // test machine (laptop):
    // QT_ACCEL_FILEPATH=/sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/position

    quint64 produceTimestamp()
    struct timespec tv;
    int ok;

    ok = clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW, &tv);
    if (ok != 0)
    ok = clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, &tv);
    Q_ASSERT(ok == 0);

    quint64 result = (tv.tv_sec * 1000000ULL) + (tv.tv_nsec * 0.001); // scale to microseconds
    return result;


    if i define environment variables "QT_ACCEL_FILEPATH=sys/devices/mpu6500",qtsensor will read sensor data from "sys/devices/mpu6500" ,but i don't know what kind of data type shoud be read from this sys interface.Feel free to critisize me,i need your help!!!
