Waydroid is a container-based approach to boot a full Android system on a regular GNU/Linux system like Ubuntu.
Waydroid uses Linux namespaces (user, pid, uts, net, mount, ipc) to run a full Android system in a container and provide Android applications on any GNU/Linux-based platform.
The Android inside the container has direct access to needed hardwares.
The Android runtime environment ships with a minimal customized Android system image based on the LineageOS. The used image is currently based on Android 11
