Hi Privacy Interest Group,

The Device and Sensors Working Group requests review of the following
specification before 2017-12-31:

   Generic Sensor API
   https://www.w3.org/TR/generic-sensor/

Including the following concrete sensor specifications that extend
the Generic Sensor API:

   Ambient Light Sensor
   https://www.w3.org/TR/ambient-light/

   Accelerometer
   https://www.w3.org/TR/accelerometer/
   
   Gyroscope
   https://www.w3.org/TR/gyroscope/

   Magnetometer
   https://www.w3.org/TR/magnetometer/

   Orientation Sensor
   https://www.w3.org/TR/orientation-sensor/

Informative background material (not in scope of the wide review):

   Motion Sensors Explainer
   https://w3c.github.io/motion-sensors/

   Sensor Use Cases
   https://w3c.github.io/sensors/usecases

In particular the group requests review of the privacy considerations.

   Security and Privacy Self-Review Questionnaire results:
   https://github.com/w3c/sensors/blob/master/security-questionnaire.md

The group requests feedback via the respective specifications' GitHub
repositories, or via email to public-device-apis@w3.org.

These publications are Pre-Candidate Recommendation Drafts under the
2017 Process [1]. Therefore, the group is looking for confirmation
that it has satisfied its relevant technical requirements and
dependencies with other groups.

Thanks,

-Anssi (Device and Sensors WG Chair)
