What causes a QSensor to be unable to connect to a sensor backend?

I'm developing a C++ program to output accelerometer values to terminal on the Nexus 4 running Ubuntu Touch. However, when I run it on device, it gives me dummy values (x = 0, y = 9.8, z = 0).
sensorsForType(QAccelerometer) gives me:
When I create an Accelerometer and check its identifier, it is dummy.accelerometer and I get the dummy values. If I set the identifier to core.accelerometer, the start() function returns 0 and as a result, isConnectedToBackend() is false.
I suspect the backend couldn't be created and returned 0 but I'm not sure. isBackendRegistered() shows that core.accelerometer is registered. I couldn't seem to find any other debugging functions and I'm stumped at how to proceed, can someone advise on what to do next?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
You can use QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS=1 to see what happens with the plugins.
However my first guess would be that ubuntu touch doesn't have a backend yet for Qt.
