I have got a Dell edge gateway 5000 with Linux Snappy 15.04 as OS.

I have installed the gateway access point and I can connect the gateway from my smartphone. Now, I need to read the smartphone sensors like accelerometer, touch screen co-ordinates, light, and so on.

The smartphone is an HTC M9 with Android 7.0.

  • Please add some link, doc about the gateway. Feb 6, 2017 at 7:49

    What smartphone do you have? You have to add this information in the question (Android, iOS, Windows phone, ...)

    If you are not going to code it yourself, I believe that your best approach is to ask at softwarerecs.stackexchange.com, not here, since you are asking us to provide a software application

From sensors you can register a listener to sensor events [1] and on every value you send it to a ByteArrayWriter/Listener pair over socket connection [2].

Socket needs only WLAN from the gateway, the rest of it is java code [3].

Complete solution needs some coding effort with the building blocks I gave.
