APS(4)                  NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                 APS(4)

NAME
     aps -- ThinkPad Active Protection System accelerometer

SYNOPSIS
     aps0 at isa? port 0x1600

DESCRIPTION
     The aps driver provides support for several sensors found in some
     ThinkPad laptops.

     The sensors currently exposed via the envsys(4) interface are:

           Sensor              Units    Typical Use
           X_ACCEL             Integer  X Acceleration
           Y_ACCEL             Integer  Y Acceleration
           X_VAR               Integer  Weighted X Acceleration?
           Y_VAR               Integer  Weighted Y Acceleration?
           Temp1               uK       Unknown
           Temp2               uK       Unknown
           Keyboard Active     Boolean  Keyboard activity
           Mouse Active        Boolean  Mouse activity
           Lid Open            Boolean  Lid state

HISTORY
     The aps driver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.8 and then was ported to
     NetBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     The aps driver was written by Jonathan Gray <jsg@openbsd.org>.

CAVEATS
     The aps driver does not yet maintain state and subsequently does not take
     evasive action when it thinks the hard drive is in danger.

     The Y axis on X40 and possibly other models seems to be inverted.  It is
     unknown how to distinguish between different versions of the accelerome-
     ter to compensate for this in the driver at this time.

     As IBM provides no documentation, it is not known what all the available
     sensors are used for.
