How to get Acceleration and GPS in the same time??

Purpose: Obtain Acceleration and GPS in the same time

 

Current status: I can get acceleration or GPS. When I try to get both data, the code will stop.

 

Mini Code

If (bps_event_get_domain(event) == sensor_get_domain() ) {
  handle_acceleration_data();
}
if (bps_event_get_domain(event) == geolocation_get_domain()){

  handle_gps_data();

}

 

Question: Does anyone know how to get both data in one event or other methods??

 

Thank your attention,

Re: How to get Acceleration and GPS in the same time??

Your code shows the handling of events, but not the requesting or getting of events.  Can you show more of your code?  The following should work (note there is no error checking):

 

sensor_request_events(SENSOR_TYPE_ACCELEROMETER);
geolocation_set_period(1);
geolocation_request_events(0);

bps_event_t *event;
while (true) {
    
    bps_get_event(&event, -1);
    if (!event) {
        continue;
    }

    if (bps_event_get_domain(event) == sensor_get_domain()) {
        handle_acceleration_data(event);
    } else if (bps_event_get_domain(event) == geolocation_get_domain()) {
        handle_gps_data(event);
    }
}

Thanks  jhoffmann

 

Problem:

I added the gpsrequest in a wrong line.

 

Solution:

 

else if (NAVIGATOR_WINDOW_STATE == event_code) {
    if (navigator_event_get_window_state(event) == NAVIGATOR_WINDOW_FULLSCREEN) {
        sensor_request_events(SENSOR_TYPE_ACCELEROMETER);
        geolocation_request_events(0);
    }
} else if (bps_event_get_domain(event) == sensor_get_domain() ) {
