The quaternion read-only property of the OrientationSensor interface returns a four element Array whose elements contain the components of the unit quaternion representing the device's orientation.

Because OrientationSensor is a base class, quaternion may only be read from one of its derived classes.


An Array whose values are the x, y, z, and w components of the quaternion representing the device orientation.
