Mainactivity.java:


public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements SensorEventListener {

private SensorManager mSM;
private Sensor mTemp;
private TextView sensorTextView;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

sensorTextView = findViewById(R.id.sensorTextview);
mSM = (SensorManager) getSystemService(SENSOR_SERVICE);
mTemp = mSM.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_AMBIENT_TEMPERATURE);
}

@Override
public void onSensorChanged(SensorEvent sensorEvent) {

float tmpval = sensorEvent.values[0];
sensorTextView.setText("Temp :" + (tmpval) );

}

@Override
public void onAccuracyChanged(Sensor sensor, int accuracy) {

}

@Override
protected void onResume() {
super.onResume();
mSM.registerListener(this, mTemp, SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_NORMAL);
}

@Override
protected void onPause() {
super.onPause();
mSM.unregisterListener(this);

}
