The report showcases data from any configured measurement sensors or virtual sensors with calculation method source value for the selected period. It allows you to display both graphical and statistical information from your device's sensors.
To obtain the information in the report, you need:
- A device that supports the required sensor reading on the platform. You can check if a specific type of sensor is supported by referring to the list of supported inputs for any given model.
- Data from the device and its sensors. Ensure that the device is configured to send this data and actively transmitting it.
Virtual sensors should have a source value calculation type and provide numeric values to the platform.
- Configured measurement sensors on the platform.
The following parameters are used in the report:
- Details time range: display the received readings in the data detail table in increments of 5, 30 minutes, 1, 3, or 6 hours.
The graph will display all points received from the sensor regardless of the selected value.
- 'X' axis on the graph: choose whether to display the information in the graph by time or mileage.
- Smooth data: apply smoothing to the graph if there's a significant difference in the received data. The platform will filter out peak values and attempt to average the data.
- Show address: display the address received by the platform along with the data from the sensor. The address received with the first reading in the detail segment is displayed.
- Use smart filter: exclude data received during short trips from being displayed. Short trips are defined as those shorter than 300 meters, during which the device sent fewer than 4 points.
For each device, you need to select the sensor for which to generate a report. Only devices with configured measuring or virtual sensors will appear in the list of available options.
If you select a virtual sensor with a different calculation method, the report will return with "This is not a measurement sensor."
Graph with a sensor readings
Displays the platform's measurement or virtual sensor readings in graphical form.
When hovering over any point on the graph, you'll receive information about the time it was recorded and the sensor value if the X-axis represents time. If you select the X-axis to represent mileage, you'll see the value and the mileage at which it was recorded. The mileage is calculated from the beginning of the report period.
Table with statistics data
Contains statistical data about readings by day.
The information is organized in the following columns:
- Date: the date of the recorded data.
- Minimum, units of measure: the lowest value recorded for that specific sensor during that date.
- Maximum, units of measure: the highest value recorded for that specific sensor during that date.
- Average value, units of measure: the average value of all the readings for that specific sensor during that date.
Please note that the units of measure may vary depending on the sensor settings.
The information in the first line can be interpreted as follows:
On June 11, 2023, the minimum value received from the sensor was 12.4 V. The highest value recorded on that day was 14.03 V. Taking into account all the data received for that day, the average value comes out to be 13.27 V.
Data breakdown table
This table displays the readings related to the specified time interval, starting from the current moment and moving to the next step. For example, if you're looking at a report with 30-minute increments, the information in the 00:00 row will refer to the time between 00:00 and 00:30.
The sensor may transmit data more frequently, so the table provides statistical information for each presented interval.
If "No data" appears in the table for any of the intervals, it indicates that no readings were received from the sensor during that time frame. There could be several reasons for this:
- The device didn't send data from the measurement or virtual sensor during that interval. This could be due to the device's settings.
- The device wasn't transmitting data at all during that period. This might be because it was turned off, the sensor was disconnected or disabled, or the device was removed from the monitored object.
If the sensor data contains non-numeric values, the reports will display "Unable to calculate sensor report."
The information is displayed in columns with the following values:
- Time: the time interval starting from the specified time and extending to the next step.
- Value: the closest sensor value recorded by the platform to the time in the first column.
- Minimum: the minimum value received during the interval before the next step.
- Maximum: the maximum value received during the interval before the next step.
- Average: the average of all readings received during the interval.
- Address: shows the address associated with the first reading in the interval.
Here's how you can interpret the first line of the example:
On June 11, 2023, between midnight and 1:00 AM, the car's onboard voltage had an average reading of 13.66 V. The value closest to midnight was 13.72 V. During this time interval, the minimum onboard voltage recorded was 13.46 V, while the maximum reached 13.85 V.
The report displays readings from measuring sensors recorded by the platform, making it useful for everyone to keep track of the data received at different intervals. Depending on the sensor and the site where it's being used, you can track various readings:
- Track readings from sensors installed on vehicles – such as engine temperature, coolant, on-board voltage, and many others. This will help identify vehicle issues and address them before they require extensive and costly repairs.
- Monitor heavy equipment readings to assess how it's being used and what data it's transmitting.
- Analyze data from a vehicle's body or trailer, like temperature inside a refrigerated compartment. This information helps prevent product loss during transportation.
- Examine data from various sensors installed in facilities to monitor different indicators and take necessary actions before they result in significant losses.
By staying informed with this report, you can proactively address potential issues and maintain efficiency across multiple aspects of your operations.
