Sensors: How to abstract and manage sensors for Ubuntu

Registered by Ricardo Salveti on 2013-03-05

Continuing the Sensors related discussion that happened at UDS-R, but now taking into account the Android Hardware Abstraction Layer, and how that can be abstracted and managed generically for Ubuntu.

Goals with this session:
 * Overview about what was done related with Sensors during the UDS-R cycle
 * Present how the Android HAL deals with sensors and how that was exported via the ubuntu platform-api
 * Come with a plan about future generic sensor abstraction and management for Ubuntu (from the convergence pov)
