Information about the generic sensor backend

The generic sensor backend provides emulation of some of the sensors that are not supported on the platform. For example, on a platform without a rotation sensor but with an accelerometer, the accelerometer is used to calculate the rotation, thus providing an emulated rotation sensor.

The following generic sensors are supported:

Emulated Sensor

Source Sensor

Ambient Light Sensor

Light Sensor

Orientation Sensor

Accelerometer

Rotation Sensor

Accelerometer

Tilt Sensor

Accelerometer

If a platform doesn’t support the source sensor, then the sensor cannot be emulated.
