accelerometerBMI160.tapEvent equivalent in MetaWear 3.1.9


I was using, like in the MetaWearApiTest application, the framework 'MetaWearPrivate'. But when I facing a problem to can't turn ON the light and discover that 'MetaWearPrivate' was lock on a commit 1 year old (and look like in API v2), I decided to move to the up to date 'MetaWear' (in addition of 'MetaWearCpp') framework in API v3.

I now have fix all changes to make my app working, expect the tap detector.

So my question is, is this missing or just me to didn't find it? I found in 'advanced_features' in the documentation that:
"As the C++ SDK does not yet support all available data sources, ..."

Is it one of the missing data source? And how can I write my own tap detection?

Thank you.


  • Tap support hasn't been added to the C++ SDK. We can add it in the next sdk update.

  • It would be perfect. It is the main feature at the moment so we are missing it.
    I can see you fix all issues in the CPP SDK so I hope you will have time to add it.

    Do you have an idea of the release date?

  • Probably sometime next week though it is not set in stone.

  • That is perfect.
    Thank you.

  • Hello Eric,

    I see the 0.17.0 of the CPP SDK was release.
    I just want to know if the iOS SDK will be updated or if it is on my side to update MetaWearCpp?

    Thank you.

  • The Swift SDK requires some updates to support the new features.
