Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: Sensor Device Testing Prerequisites

If a shake event is supported by the accelerometer sensor, you are asked to initiate some action to cause the shake event to occur. The test then verifies if the shake event has the intended event ID.
