Depending on the magnitudes of the acceleration vectors the orientation of the device in the
space is determined and stored in the three (0x0C) orient bits. These bits may not be reset in
the sleep phase of low-power mode. There are three orientation calculation modes with different
thresholds for switching between different orientations: symmetrical, high-asymmetrical, and
low-asymmetrical. The mode is selected by setting the (0x2C) orient_mode bits as given in table
17.
For each orientation mode the (0x0C) orient bits have a different meaning as shown in table 18
to table 20:
