Light Sensor

Measure ambient light

Library

Simulink Support Package for Android Devices / Sensors

Description

Get the ambient light measurement in lux (lx) from the light sensor on the Android™ device.

The block port outputs a single—precision value.

The light sensor is located near the front camera and device display. The device typically uses this sensor for automatic adjustment of the screen brightness.

Note

During simulations without hardware, this block outputs zeros. See Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation (Simulink).

Parameters

Sample time

Specify how often the block reads the sensor.

Smaller values require the processor to complete the same number of instructions in less time, which can cause task overruns.
