Being an interface layer between the hardware and the software of an android device, the android kernel performs many functions in an android device.
For instance;
An application sends a request to the Operating System (OS) to blink the LED light. The Operating System then sends the request to the kernel, which then makes the light flash for the number of times requested by the OS.
