Use the Sensors Diagnostic Tool to test your driver and device

Last Updated: 1/24/2017

The Sensor Diagnostic Tool (SDT) is included with the Windows Driver Kit, and you can use this tool to test your driver, firmware, and hardware functionality.

Note The Sensor Diagnostic Tool is now deprecated for Windows 10. Please use the SensorInfo App from the Windows Store, for all sensor testing and diagnostics.

After your device and driver are running, you can use this tool to test:

  • Data retrieval
  • Event handling
  • Report intervals
  • Change sensitivity
  • Property retrieval
  • Property setting

This screenshot shows the SDT running after the SpbAccelerometer sample driver and ADXL345 sensor were installed:
