Contains the Sensor class.

A sensor is some sort of device that is capable of taking one or more measurements using some sort of method. Most often we can think of these as probes or other instruments that can give back information about the world around them. Sensors can usually be given power or have that power cut. They may be awoken or activated and then returned to a sleeping/low power use state. The may need to be asked to begin a single reading or they may continuously return data. They must be capable of returning the value of their readings to a logger of some type.
