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