You will need to answer this question without considering Python - eg, how
would you talk to the hardware from *any* language.  I assume it depends on
the specific sensors.  Once you can answer that question, we can help you
apply the solution to Python - it is quite likely you would need to use the
ctypes module for this, but you need to answer that generic question first.
