The Google Activity Recognition API will enable you to detect users' activity using low power signals from multiple sensors in the device. It automatically detects activities by periodically reading short bursts of sensor data and processing them using machine learning models. Google Developers provides APIs, software development tools, and technical resources that allow communication with Google Services and their integration to other services. Google is a technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products that includes online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, software, and hardware.
